(From Oct. 11) – Pittsford resident Vincent Randazzese has been charged with several hate crimes, after allegedly screaming racial obscenities at an Indian family and throwing the father’s phone into the Erie Canal on July 15.

“This is my country, you have no f***ing rights here,” Randazzese allegedly said to the victim.

According to court documents, Randazzese, 52, also called the individual a “f***ing n***er,” and threw the victim’s cell phone into the Erie Canal when the man attempted to call police.

A grand jury has indicted Randazzese on charges of fourth-degree grand larceny, petit larceny, fourth-degree criminal mischief, and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

All of the charges have been labeled as hate crimes.

Randazzese has also reportedly been charged with stalking and violating a restraining order in the past.

In addition, Pittsford Supervisor Bill Smith has released the following statement, via Facebook, regarding the matter:

“Our entire community extends its sympathy to the family victimized on the Canal path so cruelly and so hatefully this summer. We stand in solidarity with them. We thank Monroe County Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn and his department for apprehending the perpetrator, which led to his indictment by a grand jury today. An ethnically-based assault on any one of us is an assault on the entire Pittsford community. The perpetrator has a history of trouble with the law. If the trial jury sees fit, he may have some time in confinement to reflect on his actions. Pittsford stands with the victims.”

Randazzese is scheduled to be arraigned in State Supreme Court on Oct. 25.
