Arrest Made in Anti-Semitic Attack In Dania Beach
Detectives with the Broward Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit have arrested 28-year-old Tevin Grant in connection with a violent antisemitic attack that took place in Dania Beach earlier this month.
The crime occurred at approximately 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 7, near the 2400 block of Stirling Road in Dania Beach. The victim told detectives he was riding his bicycle and talking on the phone in Hebrew when an unknown subject hurled an antisemitic slur at him before assaulting him.
Surveillance video of the incident shows a male subject wearing a yellow beanie, an open black and white plaid button-down shirt with a blue shirt underneath and black pants punching the victim in the face. The strike caused the victim to fall off the bike and to the ground. The attacker then approached the victim, who stood up. A few seconds later, the subject walked away. The attacker is then seen getting into a verbal altercation with several workers in the area who witnessed the assault, but he eventually left.
Detectives say the victim suffered multiple injuries as a result of the attack and was hospitalized.
On Tuesday, Feb. 21, Grant was taken into custody near the 1300 block of Stirling Road in Dania Beach after investigators received information regarding his whereabouts. He was transported to BSO Main Jail and faces one count of aggravated assault. The Broward State Attorney’s Office will determine whether a hate crime enhancement will be added to the initial charge.
The investigation continues.
