Four Teens Arrested On Hate Crime Charges In Beating Of Mexican Immigrant

April 10, 2010

New York (ChattahBox) – A group of four teens have been arrested in the savage beating of a Mexican immigrant, an attack that police are calling a hate crime.

Rolston Hopson (17), William Marcano (17) and Tyrone Goodman (17) have been charged in the beating, as well as an unnamed juvenile.

According to police, a security camera across the streets of the attack showed the four with baseball bats, metal planks and chains as they walked up to the victim, 26-year-old Rodulfo Olmedo.

The camera footage does not show the attack, but police believe the four surrounded him and began to hit him over and over with the objects, leaving him badly hurt and bleeding.

The camera then showed the four teenagers running from the scene, the weapons in their hands covered in what appeared to be blood.

Details of the actual attack have not been released, but authorities say that elements of the beating point to the incident being directly due to Olmedo being Mexican.

He is in stable condition.

The four boys have all been charged with assault as a hate crime, robbery as a hate crime, and aggravated harassment as a hate crime.
