Florida man attacks clerk, saying I don't like Arabs
A Stuart man is facing a hate crime charge after he reportedly told deputies he attacked a convenience store clerk Wednesday because “I don’t like Arabs.”
Jeremiah Emmanuel Hendrix, 33, was arrested following an incident inside The Family Dollar Store on Southeast Dixie Highway, just south of Southeast Indian Street. He was being held at the Martin County Jail Thursday in lieu of $40,000 bail.
Following his arrest, Hendrix allegedly confessed to the attack and told deputies he did it for “no other reason than they are (expletive) Arabs. I don’t like Arabs.”
