FBI investigating 2 attacks with alleged Ferguson references

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS )  The FBI is investigating whether hate crimes were committed during two St. Louis-area attacks last month where suspects allegedly referenced Ferguson.

Ferguson has been at the center of racial strife and protests since Michael Brown,18, was fatally shot by then Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in August.

The FBI confirmed Monday it was looking into a possible hate crime in the case of a white man accused of punching former Cardinals outfielder Curt Ford,54, who is black, at a convenience store in Fenton. The suspect allegedly told Ford, “Go back to Ferguson.”

In the other attack, a black man is accused of asking a 45-year-old white man what he thought about the “Mike Brown situation” before attacking him on a train.
