Police are still searching for a black, Desmond Ham, who attacked and severely beat a White man, Matt Hogue, on the patio of a Robinson, Pennsylvania bar ‘for no reason’ on September 6.
Hogue told Channel 11’s Vince Sims that he later found out Ham’s ex-girlfriend was allegedly at the bar, but he doesn’t know Ham at all.“That’s the thing that is most troubling to me. Somebody could be so vicious to just come up to me and hit me for no reason. The guy didn’t know me and I don’t know him,” Hogue said.
Hogue, who suffered broken bones in his cheek, continues to recovery from surgery after the alleged attack.
“I sat down and the next thing you know I had blood pouring out of my head. I could hardly see out of my eye and I was yelling. I didn’t know what happened and didn’t know what was going on. It kind of felt like I slipped out of consciousness,” Hogue said.
Because of the serious injuries Hogue suffered, police said Ham is facing felony aggravated assault charges.
“I’m looking forward to the day in court where I can look this guy in the face and ask him, ‘Why? Why did you do this to me?’” Hogue said.
Matt, he did it because he’s black. Black people just do things like this. It is in their blood. Please, don’t be confused.
