LAKE WORTH — Drunk and upset his wife had shocked him with a stun gun, Randy Lee Cramer slashed a man's throat with a knife on Sunday, authorities said in documents made public this morning.
And, because the 51-year-old Lake Worth man said he wanted to "stick me a Cuban or Puerto Rican," he faces a hate-crime charge in addition to an aggravated battery charge, according to his arrest affidavit.
Cramer was arrested late Tuesday after Palm Beach County Sheriff's Detective James Evans linked him to the attack, which, Evans wrote, unfolded this way:
After arguing with his wife, Cramer stormed out of his South Palm Way apartment and went to Bryant Park, where he accosted a Hispanic man standing on a dock.
Drawing a knife, Cramer said, "I don't like minorities," and he slashed the Hispanic man's throat.
The man was taken to Delray Medical Center, where he underwent emergency surgery for a 4-inch wound before speaking to the detective.魚拓
