Some are questioning whether a series of hammer attacks which took place near Las Vegas last Friday were motivated by racial factors, a distinction which would add it to the growing list of black on white crimes garnering little to no attention in the mainstream press.
Las Vegas resident Damien Robins, 31, faces six attempted murder charges and one count of assault with a deadly weapon after he launched a series of random assaults last Friday on drivers in Boulder City, carrying out multiple sledgehammer attacks on nearly 10 people within the course of an hour.
Fox 5 Vegas reports:
[Henderson Police Department spokesperson Keith] Paul said the incident started in Boulder City around 8 p.m. Friday when Robins is accused of attacking a woman in a car with a one-handed sledgehammer in a convenience store parking lot. He then attacked two elderly people in the parking lot of a Boulder City auto parts store, according to Paul.
Next, police said Robins ran a driver off the road on U.S. 93 and hit the male driver several times with the hammer. Authorities said after that attack, Robins drove off and ran another driver off the roadway and attacked that driver with the hammer.
Attack victim Nicole Thompson (pictured below) told CBS affiliate 8 News Now she pleaded for her life as Robins smashed out her windows and proceeded to hit her in the head.
