Dallas Hate Crime Investigation

By BJ Austin

Dallas – Dallas Police are investigating a robbery and beating in Oak Lawn over the weekend as a "hate crime."

Police say two men walking to a nightclub on Throckmorton Street were beaten with baseball bats and robbed by four men.

Detectives say they are classifying this as a hate crime based on derogatory statements made by the suspects. The area is a gay neighborhood. The injuries were not life-threatening.
