Another man watched the guy beat one of the women before he slipped out of the store.
Police arrested a man for allegedly beating two Asian women, ages 66 and 67, in a Baltimore liquor store:
The victims were liquor store employees who were closing up shop Tuesday morning when Daryl Doles, 50, allegedly broke into the store and attacked them, according to the report.
Surveillance video shared by the outlet shows the man wrestling one worker to the floor and hitting her with the cinder block, while an unidentified cowardly man in the store appears to step aside and watch the attack before calmly walking outside.
The other woman tried to help the woman on the floor, but the attacker then hit her with the cinder block. He took off after the fight went outside the store.
Authorities charged Doles with two counts of aggravated assault and a weapons offense. They have not said yet if they will seek hate crime charges.
The two women did not have life-threatening injuries:
Both women were taken to the hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Photos posted on a GoFundMe fundraising page for the victims showed the women’s bruised and swollen faces. John Yun, who said he is the son of one of the victims and nephew of the other, wrote that his aunt suffered black eyes and had to get more than 25 stitches on her head.
“We are relieved that both of their CT scans came back good and were discharged hours later,” Yun wrote.
A GoFundMe page has raised $72,131 so far.
“First and foremost, our family would like to sincerely thank everyone for the support during these tough times for my mother and aunt,” Yun wrote on the page. “Words cannot express all the love and compassion my family has received during this extremely tough time. It is truly comforting to know there is still good in this world. We are grateful to know we have family, friends, and even supporters who will stand by our side.
“Our family would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts.”
