Employee Injured in Hate Crime Incident at Café Istanbul

8 People Ransack Turkish Restaurant in Beverly Hills Incident

Beverly Hills, CA (November 4, 2020) – An employee was injured in an alleged hate crime incident at Café Istanbul. The incident occurred on the evening of November 4 in Beverly Hills.

A group of at least eight Armenian-Americans ransacked Café Istanbul. They grabbed chairs from inside the restaurant and threw them at the owners. Employees followed the attackers outside and were attacked again.

The attackers threatened the employees, saying things such as “We are here to kill Turks and we hate you guys, you guys must die.” 

There has been a tense relationship between Armenians and Turks in the area for many years. The employees say they have been receiving death threats for several weeks.

Police are looking for six to eight people. One employee was injured in the attack. Café Istanbul has had to shut down for several days to assess and fix the damage.
