The 19-year-old became enraged after watching Facebook videos of police brutality against black people in America, prosecutors said on Thursday

He has been charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

The 19-year-old allegedly entered the automotive parts shop near his home in Columbus on August 25 and asked the AutoZone employee for a thermostat.

But when the worker told him they were out and turned to walk away, Hatchett stabbed him multiple times, cops said.

Hatchett appeared before Judge Julius Hunter for his arraignment on Thursday in court, where Columbus Police Sgt R.S. Mills testified about the alleged attack.

When Hatchett was asked about his motive for the stabbing, he said he twa angered by Facebook videos of police brutality against black people around the US and targeted the man because he was white, Mills claimed.

“Mr Hatchett told me that he had been watching Facebook videos of police shootings in other parts of the country and that he felt the need to find a white male to kill,” Mills told the court, as reported by WLTZ.

Hatchett smiled at officers when they came to arrest him at his home and he later confessed to stabbing the employee, Mills added.

Surveillance footage appears to show the assailant fleeing the store after the unprovoked attack.

The worker was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, and authorities said he’s lucky to be alive.

Police were tipped off by the public after cops released images captured on surveillance cameras.

Three days before the stabbing, Hatchett had been freed on bond after being charged with criminal damage to property, the news station reported.

He was arrested six months ago for two felonies, including aggravated assault.

Judge Hunter declined to issue bond after the recent charges and ordered Hatchett to undergo a mental health evaluation.

The teen’s case has been sent up to Superior Court.
