Andy Tran (Asian) and his fiancée (White) were walking with their dogs in Westchase when a man started hurling hate speech at them on Tuesday.
“Take your Jewish technology and film me, boy,” the man said. “Come at me, I’ll beat the f*ck out of you.”
The man wore a green “Be Someone” shirt, a hat and sunglasses and used racist remarks normally aimed against Asian and Black people, according to Tran. The couple said he also called Tran’s fiancée a “white whore.”
Tran decided to record the verbal attack when he saw the man walking toward them.
“What are you? Chink? Mexican? I don’t know what the f*ck you are,” the unidentified man said before the recording ends.
“I’ve never had any problems,” Tran told The Houston Chronicle. “Our neighborhood is actually really diverse. It was just weird. That’s why we were laughing, because it was just so out of nowhere.”
Tran filed a police report through the Houston Police Department’s non-emergency line after 5 p.m. on Tuesday. While it is unclear if the incident will be considered a crime, the police are currently investigating the incident as “an assault by threat.”
