Black Teenagers in Baltimore Allegedly Beat Hispanic Man While Yelling "This is For Trayvon"

Police investigating whether the Zimmerman verdict played a part in the incident even as they have no suspects yet


Baltimore police say they are investigating a witness account that a group of black youths beat a Hispanic man near Patterson Park Sunday while saying, "This is for Trayvon."

A witness posted the account on a community Facebook page, and police confirmed they are looking into whether the suspects' reaction to the verdict in the Florida trial of George Zimmerman played a part in the incident. A police report on the beating does not mention the alleged comments.
