Towson University is investigating a possible hate crime after police responded to an alleged assault against two members of a Jewish fraternity near campus early Sunday morning, according to a Baltimore County police report.
The two victims, both members of Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi, told police that they were walking to a house in the unit block of Aigburth Road at 2:12 a.m. Sunday when two suspects followed them, shouting “F— the Jews” and calling them an ethnic slur. The assailants, the report said, then followed the victims to the front of the house and began to punch one of the victims in the face.
“He believes the assault was motivated by his religious beliefs,” the police report said of one of the victims.
The victim told police he recognized the assailants as Towson University students.
One of the victims called 911, and the responding police officers arrived at the scene and saw the two suspects standing over one of the victims and yelling at him, the report said. The officer then told the parties to separate and saw injuries on the victim’s face.
Both suspects appeared intoxicated, the report said. Police know the identities of both assailants, but the Baltimore Sun Media Group is not publishing their identities because they have not yet been charged.
