They were victims as customers assaulted the family on March 17 at the store in an unprovoked attack Wednesday, March 24,in Houston. Jung Kim, who owns Uptown Beauty Supply, Kuykendahl Rd, was injured as customers assaulted the family on March 17 at the store in an unprovoked attack Wednesday, March 24,in Houston.
Amid a rising wave of violence against Asian Americans, a Harris County grand jury has indicted a woman on a hate crime charge in an attack last month involving the Korean owner of a beauty supply shop.
The indictment on a misdemeanor assault charge handed up Thursday accuses Keaundra Young, 24, of punching the owner of Uptown Beauty Supply on March 17 at the north Houston store. Stephenson said she faces up to 20 years on the aggravated assault involving the car.
The DA did not seek to prosecute her for a hate crime. He said a doctor told him he might need laser surgery for the wound on his face. The family has been overwhelmed with the kindness of their customers who, like their employees, are mostly Black. Korean-owned beauty supply shops are fairly prolific in predominantly Black neighborhoods in most major U. The incident began when Kim tried to pick up wigs customers had knocked to the floor, the son said.
His mother told them not to worry about it. But the women cursed at her and said Asian people should not be selling wigs to Black people and used racist language, victims said.
Kim, who is a Korean national, asked the pair to leave, prompting the physical violence, her son said. Houston police reported 29 hate crimes inwith 13 of those stemming from racial biases. Since Januarythe DA has filed about a dozen cases, a spokesperson said. About half of those are pending. Samantha Ketterer contributed reporting.
