WATCH: White Man Assaults Asian Employee, Uses Racial Slurs After Skipping Bill at Virginia Restaurant

Police are investigating a possible hate crime after a man pushed the owner of an Arlington restaurant to the ground and used racial slurs after he was confronted about skipping out on the bill.

Henry Kim and his mother, who are both Asian, own Bonsai Grill in Crystal City.

They said on Tuesday, a customer ate about $70 worth of food and then walked out. Together they followed him and asked him to pay.

Kim’s cellphone video shows the customer claiming to be on an emergency phone call. When Kim called 911, he said the customer became aggressive and pushed his mother to the ground.

“When we got to the corner over there, that’s when he started saying like racial slurs like, ‘Get out of my face —–. You Asians have the coronavirus. I don’t want it from you guys. Get away,'” Kim said.

Police said after the assault, the man ran away toward Richmond Highway.
