VA Man Charged With Hate Crime: Used Muslim Slurs And Bit His Victim’s Face

Islamophobia, News, Racism and Hate Groups

A McLean man is facing hate crime charges after he used anti-Muslim slurs and threatened a man, then, like a rabid dog, bit his face.

Robin McGreer, 35, approached a 31-year-old man in a Tysons Corner Center parking lot Nov. 27, started a conversation and then threatened him using anti-Muslim slurs, reported The Washington Post.

There was a quarrel which ended in McGreer biting the man’s face, leaving him with a “significant face wound,” police said. McGreer fled the scene before police arrived.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Fairfax police said their policy is not to release details about victims’ backgrounds, so they would not verify the race or religion of the victim. Based on the charges, it seems very probable that at least McGreer thought the man was Muslim.

McGreer was arrested Monday and charged with bias-related malicious bodily injury.
