Charges: Men In Wigs Pee On Woman, Steal Her iPhone

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – One man has been charged in connection with an incident earlier this week wherein a woman was held down and urinated on as a number of men wearing wigs surrounded her in St. Paul.

The incident happened on Monday evening, police said. A 31-year-old woman said she was standing near the 500 block of Farrington Avenue when a vehicle pulled up next to her. There were four men inside, all wearing wigs.

The complaint says that one of the men asked, “How do we get back to University Avenue?”

When she approached, the driver grabbed her and ripped her iPhone 4 from her hands. The complaint says the other men got out of the vehicle and pushed her to the sidewalk next to a building nearby.

According to the charges, one of the men pulled her by her hair and urinated on her after the others had pulled her pants down.

The victim told police she feared she would be raped, but they all laughed after one of them urinated on her. She said they left after one of them asked, “You took that white b****’s phone?”

She sustained a cut on her wrist and a cut above her eye in the ordeal.

Police located the vehicle a few hours later. Investigators said there were a number of people inside the parked vehicle, which smelled strongly of marijuana.

The woman’s iPhone was located inside the vehicle, which the driver — 18-year-old Miklos Dates Jr. — said belonged to his aunt but was later discovered to have been a stolen Enterprise rental car.

Dates has been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery and fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Can't be.  The perps are black and the victim is white.

Just because they used a racial slur doesn't make it a hate crime. I'd need more info to know if she was assaulted because she was white... Either way that is horrible and I hope the kid gets punished to the fullest extent of the law

Potentially, would have to depend on additional information from the interrogation. How terrifying for her though, I have no doubt she feared she would be raped given they pulled her pants down.

I'm not a fan of hate crime legislation. I support harsher penalties for ALL violent crimes.

 


Thank God......it's Friday!!!

"just because they used a racial slur doesn't make it a hate crime".

That's the crux folks.

If this were white dudes and called the vic a "black xyz" would ya still be on the fence with it being a hate crime or not?
