Thanks to all who passed on the incredibly disturbing report from Valley Brook Tea:

“I don’t know what to say anymore. This type of hate crime happened to us again. This morning(9:42), this person charged into our store shouting “Chinese” and “Covid-19”, then attacked me with pepper spray. If you recognize him, please contact us or call 911.

I got sprayed on my face, arm, cloth. Some got into my mouth. I was choking badly when I called 911. I’m not injured. However the burning has not stopped after hours.

It seems we’re the only business that keeps getting harassed and attacked in this neiborghood. We cannot stay in business if this happens on a weekly/monthly basis. Please help us identify this individual. Thank you.”
