A 17-year-old boy who realized he was at the same convenience store as a man whose picture had appeared on a mailed sex-offender notice followed the man away from the shop and beat him up, New Orleans police said this week.

Now, besides facing a count of misdemeanor battery, Tyrin Calloway stands accused of a hate crime, apparently on the theory that he targeted his alleged victim, a stranger, for being a registered sex offender, according to Criminal District Court records.

… While paramedics took the man to a hospital, police handcuffed Calloway and questioned him. They said he waived his right to remain silent and explained that the beaten man was on a sex-offender notice card the teenager had received in the mail.
