A Navy veteran was studying at Boston University last week when he was attacked in what could be a hate crime. Why and how the altercation started is yet unknown. No witnesses have come forward and police are desperately looking for clues to help them nab the suspects.
Police say Michael Stinnett was at Beacon Street and Park Drive in Boston when he was attacked by three people who had been driving by in a dark car.
Stinnett, who served eight years as a Navy weapons instructor, told police the car stopped after he yelled at the driver to slow down.
A witness told Boston Police that three black males got out of the car and began fighting with Stinnett.
Stinnett suffered a brain bleed, along with several bumps and bruises, according to a family member. He was taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital for treatment.
Police are asking any witnesses to the incident to get contact them.
