Bail was set at $30,000 for Michael J. Allen, 40, who is charged with a hate crime.
Charging documents stated that on July 11, Allen assaulted women without provocation in Seattle.
First, he struck a woman in the back of the head, near 3rd Avenue and Union Street, yelling, “You fucking dumb b****, I hate you! F*** you, I hate you!”
According to probable cause documents, that woman told police that Allen then turned his attention to two Asian women. He yelled at Wanglei Qin and Quinyu Wu to “Go back to China,” and punched Qin in the shoulder.
He was charged with assault in the attack on the first woman, who is not Asian, and a hate crime against the attack on the other women, who are Chinese nationals.
