The suspect who hit him said he does not like white Americans.
Just one hour before the attack, the suspects punched Robin Cooper who is a nurse at HCMC.
The attacks happened at Elliot Park in downtown Minneapolis along 8th Street.
“I believe they picked on someone they thought they can get away with,” says Cooper.
