Police seek help in racially-motivated attack on businessman

Police in Portland , OR Monday released a photo of a man suspected of spitting and physically attacking a business owner and his mother.

Tommy Ly told Fox 12 the biker came racing toward his mom and almost hit her. When he asked the man to be careful, Ly said the man spit at his mother and flicked a cigarette butt at her. He also accused the suspect of throwing a punch at him and yelling racial slurs.

“He just biked back around, got close to my mom and spit in her face and at that point I just lost it, and just grabbed my mace and emptied the whole can straight into his face and then he just biked off,” Ly said to KGW.

Ly is the owner of Stumptown Otaku. He says he and his staff routinely carry mace to protect themselves.

Portland Police are calling this a racially motivated assault and are offering a $2500 reward in the case. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers of Oregon. You can remain anonymous.
