PLANO (CBS 11 NEWS) – Plano Police and volunteers hit the streets today to alert residents to a string of violent attacks that are targeting Hispanic men. There have been five since October…two of them as late as last week.

Neighborhood businesses are participating, posting flyers to raise awareness of the potential danger…while police take a more direct approach.

Detective Daniel Caballero and Sergeant Lindy Privett went to Plano markets and bazaars carrying a warning in Spanish….that Hispanic men walking alone have been targeted and violently robbed.

Police say there have been five attacks in recent months. A group of two or three young black men beat up the victims and took their money.

In the last robbery, the violence escalated. A mentally challenged man—Isais Vasquez, whose story aired on CBS 11 News earlier this week, was beaten with a shovel or ax handle. It took 14-stitches to close his wound.

Today, a friend of Vasquez, who bumped into the officers, was happy police were alerting others.

Word is getting around. Ruben and Josefina Zimarron saw the story on TV. Detective Caballerot translated, “She says since she’s at home, she watches a lot of news, and she heard about it on the news, and they are concerned about it.”
