A black man was arrested this week for brutally beating two elderly Asian women with a cement block in a Baltimore shop early Tuesday.
Daryl Doles, 50, was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault after he repeatedly beat two Asian women with a cinder block.
It is unclear if the attack is being investigated as a hate crime.
According to reports, the attack happened just after midnight at a liquor store in the 2000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in Baltimore.
Surveillance video shows Doles force his way into the shop as the two (unidentified) Asian sisters ages 66 and 67 were closing down for the night.
Daryl Doles held one of the women down and repeatedly hit her in the head with a cement block.
The woman’s sister rushed over to help and at that point Doles began beating both women.
The two women tried to fight back but they got overpowered by Doles.
Both women were taken to a nearby hospital and according to a family member, one of the victims had black eyes and got 25 stitches on her head.
