AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — Aurora Police are looking for a woman who is suspected of a bias-motivated crime.
On Tuesday, Aurora PD tweeted asking if anyone recognized the woman. The woman pictured has been identified as a suspect in a bias-motivated crime that took place on June 25.
APD gave an update on Wednesday that the detective has received numerous tips from the community and believes he has identified the woman. Once they confirm their identity, an arrest will be made.
According to police, on June 25, the woman was verbally harassing an employee at a 7-Eleven due to his national origin.
Another woman then stepped in to intervene and was then assaulted by the suspect. The suspect called the woman a racial slur. A man also confronted the suspect when she called him another racial slur.
