Road rage suspected in Muslim Va. teen's death

It's being shared widely online.

Hassanen was asked by The Guardian if he believed his daughter's Muslim religion was a factor in the attack. Then I'm going to forgive him and leave him to God's face.

Police have said that there is no evidence that the incident was a hate crime and cited road rage as a factor.

A neighbor of the man accused of killing a Virginia teenager says the suspect was a quiet loner who did not appear to have a steady job. Authorities have determined that Darwin Martinez Torres, 22, is responsible for the killing. "He was running behind these kids".

"Something happened and he became upset", Wright said in a telephone interview, declining to describe what the dispute was about.

He added that Torres' decision to follow a group of girls wearing headscarves should be taken into account by police.

He was assigned a public defender.

The woman refused to open the door Tuesday afternoon.

Police arrested Martinez about 90 minutes after the assault and a judge ordered that he remain jailed without bail, officials said.

The apartment was in a sprawling complex with predominantly Spanish-speaking tenants. They had left The ADAMS Center and were walking toward a shopping center to get food when Torres, who was driving in a vehicle, got out and confronted them, police said. All but Hassanen fled to the mosque, where worshipers alerted authorities.

It appears the suspect, Darwin A Martinez Torres, 22, of Sterling, got out of his auto and assaulted the victim. They found what they believed to be the girl's body on Sunday in a pond. Torres has been charged with one count of second-degree murder. The Washington Post reports that the mosque, along with family members, identified the girl as Nabra Hassanen, from Reston, Virginia. Retzer says she offered condolences and says Nabra will be greatly missed. He eventually got out of his auto with a baseball bat and chased the group.

A medical examiner ruled that the teen died of blunt-force trauma.

According to statements from police and the mosque, Hassanen and her friends were walking back to the All Dulles Area Muslim Society mosque from a McDonald's in the Sterling area between 3 and 4 a.m. Sunday when a man drove up and some kind of altercation ensued. "Torres then took Nabra with him in his auto to a second location nearby, in Loudoun County".

Patrol officers were notified of the incident and began to investigate.

Sharon Bulova, chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, expressed solidarity with the Muslim centre and said a prayer vigil would held on Wednesday at a high school. "She came to do her break, so all her, what she did, she came here for the month of Ramadan to do her prayer", Sherif said.

On a crowdfunding page to support Nabra's family, donations surged to more than $55,000 by midnight.

Police have arrested a 22-year-old man who allegedly assaulted and killed a 17-year-old after she left her mosque in Virginia. According to CNN, a police officer recognized the auto as fitting the description of the vehicle in the road rage attack.
