The attack took place Wednesday in Cleveland, Ohio, when 10 year old Danielle Fair was assaulted while riding a scooter by a 13 year old black girl on Leeila Avenue off Bellaire Road on the west side of Cleveland.
The attack appears to have been an ambush as the girl on the scooter never had a chance to defend herself. A neighbor says she saw it all, and she heard the attacker use a racial slur … “Cracker. She called her a cracker.” according to 19 Action News.
With a camera pre-positioned, and the attacker preening before the victim came into reach, the strike was clearly pre-planned. And the motivation behind the attack doesn’t seem to be much in doubt.
A Cleveland police spokesman said officers are investigating the attack as a juvenile assault. A narrative included with the police report lists the case as a “hate incident.”
Yet so far, no arrests have been made.
