Va. man charged with hate crime after using Muslim slurs, biting victim’s face, police say

A McLean man is facing hate crime charges after police said he bit another man’s face in November after an altercation in which he used anti-Muslim slurs.

Robin McGreer, 35, approached a 31-year-old man in a Tysons Corner Center parking lot Nov. 27, started a conversation and then threatened him using anti-Muslim slurs, Fairfax County police said.

An altercation ensued and McGreer bit the man’s face, leaving him with a “significant face wound,” police said. McGreer left the scene before police arrived.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Fairfax police said it is the department’s policy not to release details about victims’ backgrounds, so they would not describe the victim’s race or religion.

McGreer was arrested Monday and charged with bias-related malicious bodily injury.
