Black Man ‘Stabbed Autozone Employee Because He Felt the Need to Find a White Male to Kill After Watching Videos of Police Brutality’

A black teenager allegedly stabbed a white Auto Zone employee after watching Facebook videos of police brutality and feeling felt ‘the need to find a white male to kill’, prosecutors claim.

Jayvon Hatchett, 19, appeared in court in Columbus, Georgia, on Thursday charged with with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

He entered the Auto Zone near his home in Columbus on August 25 at 8:36am, and asked the employee for a thermostat.

When the worker told him they did not have one and turned to walk away, Hatchett allegedly stabbed him multiple times, then fled from the store.

Surveillance footage appears to show him running from the scene.

The worker was transported to the hospital in critical condition.

Authorities say he is to be lucky to be alive.

Police were tipped off by members of the public after releasing images captured on surveillance cameras.

On Thursday, Hatchett appeared before Judge Julius Hunter for his arraignment.

Sgt Ray Mills told the court that Hatchett smiled at officers when they came to arrest him at his home, and confessed to stabbing the employee.
