The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the community's help to identify a subject whose image was caught on surveillance camera prior to committing what may be a bias motivated assault.

On February 11, 2011, at approximately 1:54 a.m., officers responded to 20th and K Street on an assault.  The victim, a male in his 20's, was walking with his friends when the suspect came out of a bar yelling derogatory comments directed at homosexuals.  One of the victim's friends said something to the suspect about his comments.  The suspect came up to the victim and punched him.

The suspect and a female that was with him were captured on surveillance camera prior to the assault.  The suspect is identified as a male Black, 20's, 5'10"-6', 210-230 lbs, thin mustache, silver necklace, and wearing an earring in his left ear.  The suspect was seen leaving with a female Hispanic associate in an older gray sedan possibly a Ford Crown Victoria with 22" rims.

The Sacramento Police Department takes bias motivated crimes very seriously and is asking the community's help to identify the suspect in this crime.
