Baltimore police say they are investigating a witness account that a group of black youths beat a Hispanic man near Patterson Park Sunday while saying, “This is for Trayvon.” They are looking into whether the suspects’ reaction to the verdict in the Florida trial of George Zimmerman played a part in the incident.

A witness posted the account on a community Facebook page. A police report on the beating does not mention the alleged comments. Sgt. Eric Kowalczyk, a Baltimore police spokesman, declined to go into further detail.

The post on Facebook drew nearly 50 comments. Real estate agent Christina Dudley said she was walking to her car just before 9 p.m. when she saw several young black males and two black females chasing a 37-year-old Hispanic man west on North Linwood Avenue past East Fairmont Avenue.

“One of the boys had a handgun out and it was pointed at the back of him,” Dudley said in an interview.

She went on to say in the interview;

“Everyone in the neighborhood is well aware of the situation, but my concern is that we have a very large Hispanic population and many of them might not have Internet connection or they aren’t on that page,” So my concern is trying to get the word out to them’
