White Man Charged With Federal Hate Crime in ‘Knockout Game’ Assault

A man has been charged with a federal hate crime in connection with what authorities say was a racially motivated “knockout” assault against an elderly black man, the U.S. Justice Department said Thursday. Conrad Alvin Barrett, 27, of Katy, Texas, has been charged with one count of violating the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. According to the federal complaint, Barrett attacked the 79-year-old man “because of the man’s race and color.” He will next appear in court Friday afternoon for a detention hearing.
