Placeholder Image
• Oct. 22 Simple battery 466 West Gen. Screven Way
A South Carolina man said he was assaulted outside of a Hinesville restaurant. The man told police he left the restaurant after picking up his dinner order and someone tapped him on the shoulder. He turned and was punched in the face.
The victim said he fell to the ground and curled up into a ball as the first individual and two others began “whaling, punching and kicking” him. He said he curled up to make himself a smaller target. While on the ground, the man searched for his car keys. He told police he found his keys and managed to stand and walk to his car. As the man got into his car, one of the individuals yanked the yarmulke he was wearing off his head and allegedly said, “This is what you get for being a Jew.”
The man told police he got behind the wheel of his car and drove away. He described the men to police and reported that he saw the men inside the restaurant while he was waiting for his order.
