A 70-year-old man out for a 6 a.m. morning walk in the town of Soccoro’s Valle del Sol Park, was grabbed, thrown in a van and raped by 4 men. FBI is working on the case, perhaps because the crime and robbery is considered a hate crime. The four rapists were Black. Their victim was Mexican-American. The alleged rapists yelled racial slurs as they injured him badly enough to need surgery. The victime is said to be in serious condition in the hospital. It appears all 4 of the attackers participated in the rape.
Police are looking for a late-90’s Ford or Chevrolet van and 4 Black men in their miid-20’s or 30’s.
“These four people know each other well enough to do something like this in front of each other. This is an atrocity!” Garcia said. “This man was somebody’s dad. This man was somebody’s brother, somebody’s friend.”
