FBI offers $10,000 reward in apparent Kansas City hate crime
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The FBI is offering $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in an apparent hate crime at a Kansas City community college.
The federal agency on Friday released a poster seeking the public's help in an investigation of the incident on April 3 at the Penn Valley campus of Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City.
A female student, who is Muslim, told authorities she was going down stairs in the Humanities Building when she heard a man make a derogatory comment.
