OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are searching for a man who spewed racist comments then assaulted a woman in the parking lot of a southwest Oklahoma City convenience store.

Just after 4 a.m. on Sunday, August 21, a Hispanic woman went to a convenience store at S.W. 29th Street and Blackwelder to get something to drink. The victim says while she was in the parking lot, a white, four-door car that may have been a Pontiac or Buick pulled in beside her. Approximately five people were inside.

Police say the victim and the occupants of the car began arguing. At one point, a man stepped out of the white car and began yelling at the victim and making racist comments. Police say the man then punched the woman in the face. The man then got back in the car and the group drove away.
