Two Teens Charged In Beating Of Black Man



Two teenagers and an adult were charged in the beating of a 76-year-old black man in Baltimore, an incident police said has racial overtones.


Charged as adults were Emmanuel Miller, 16, and Zachary Watson, 17, who, along with Calvin Lockner, 28, face charges of attempted murder, assault and harassing a person because of race or religion, CNN reported Friday.

The victim, James Privott, was in critical condition Thursday, but making progress, a Baltimore police spokeswoman said. Doctors told police he sustained a possible fractured eye orbital bone and had serious head trauma, court documents said.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld said some of Lockner's tattoos seem to indicate he was affiliated with racist groups such as the Aryan Brotherhood, CNN affiliate WBAL-TV, Baltimore, reported.

There was no evidence the teens were affiliated with white supremacist groups, police told CNN.

Court documents said police responded to an armed carjacking call Tuesday, finding Privott with a head injury. Privott told police he was loading his truck after fishing when three or four white males approached him then began kicking and punching him while uttering racial epithets.

Documents said Privott told police one man struck him before the attackers stole his wallet and keys to his truck, which they used to flee.
