Montgomery County police are investigating what they call a possible hate crime against two Sikh men.
The men were assaulted by a group of teenagers on Sept. 15 in Burtonsville.
The victims are a 75-year-old from Springfield, Va., and a 77-year-old from Burtonsville.
Police say the two were walking in the woods when they came across the group of six or seven boys, believed to be about 14 or 15. They say two of the teenagers punched the men in the face, causing them to fall to the ground.
Police say they have no information about the motive, but are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime. [Link]
