A Muslim civil liberties group says religious bias is behind an attack on an 18 year old college freshman is St. Louis. The local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations wants police to investigate last month's assault on LaSalle Park Court as a possible hate crime. The victim spent three days hospitalized in intensive care after he was hit in the back of the head during an argument with a neighbor's boyfriend, who said his car had been scratched. Police say the suspect demanded money for the vehicle damage after the victim came to the girlfriend’s home to discuss the matter. Members of the victim’s family say they have previously had their tires slashed, windows broken and been the target of religious slurs.
