Driver who struck pedestrians in California thought victims were Muslim, police say

Recommended Posts




The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety said in a statement that the suspect, Isaiah Joel Peoples, 34, "intentionally targeted the victims based on their race and his belief that they were of the Muslim Faith."

None of the victims died in the Tuesday night crash. Peoples is charged with eight counts of attempted murder. The Department of Public Safety said that the apparent motive was based on new evidence in the case.


Peoples was arrested at the scene, and officials said it appeared he was waiting for police to arrive.


He looks old for 34 to me.
