NAPA, Calif. —
Napa police are investigating a possible hate crime that happened Thursday night at a Starbucks involving a noose.
Police said a customer found a noose hanging in the men's bathroom of the coffee shop on First and Main streets.
Detectives have not yet had a chance to speak to the employee who was told about it, but police said he is African-American and fears it is a hate crime.
“Finding a noose anywhere is kind of unusual,” said Napa police officer Jeff Troendly. “We don't get a lot of that, so that does spark a bit of interest on our part.”
“I'm totally surprised,” said Linda Bonaccorso, who works at Bounty Hunter Rare Wine & Spirits. “I go to that Starbucks every day and I've never seen anything bad happen around.”
Police said they’re waiting for Starbucks to give them access to surveillance video recorded inside the coffee shop.
