As of this time, he has not been charged with a hate crime, although as the investigation continues those charges may be added.

He has since undergone more than 17 hours of surgeries, but Boruch Hashem he is recovering.
Police Chaplain Rabbi Mark Rosenberg tells YWN that he thanks the incredible work of the Police Department, as they worked tirelessly to make this arrest.
He remains in jail under no bond.
