ST. LOUIS — The FBI is looking for a man who is accused of committing a hate crime on a Metro bus. They say he violently attacked a transgender victim last spring. Investigators have released video and images to help find the suspect. They are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

The suspect boarded the bus at Chippewa and Grand on Thursday, April 13, at around 3:30 p.m. Surveillance video shows the suspect talking with the victim near the rear of the bus. After a few minutes, the suspect stands up and starts to punch and kick the victim dozens of times. He then points a gun at the victim and drags them out of a seat before leaving the bus.

The investigators did not share the condition of the victim. A FOX 2 reporter is following up on the FBI’s initial release.
