    Arrest in L.I. church Hispanic hate crime case: Suspect is Hispanic

    Suffolk County police have busted the man who left an anti-Hispanic note at the altar of a church.

    And the suspect is Hispanic.

    Christian Mungia Garcia, 25, was arrested Friday night after hurling a wooden log and a glass bottle at a congregant of the Iglesia Evangelica Refugio de Salvacion in Patchogue. Cops later accused Garcia of leaving the hate-filled note Wednesday at the church.

    Garcia was charged with attempted assault as a hate crime, police said. He was arraigned yesterday and due back in court Thursday.

    The arrest comes on the heels of a Southern Poverty Law Center report that found Latino immigrants in Suffolk County live in a “climate of fear.” Last fall, a gang of ***** jumped Ecuadorian immigrant Marcelo Lucero and stabbed him to death.

    Still, Mayor Paul Pontieri said Garcia’s hate was fueled by an ongoing dispute with members of the church - and not by race. “If you’re in Patchogue … it seems like every incident is immediately painted as a hate crime,” Pontieri said. “All eyes are on Patchogue.”

    Suffolk County police spokesman Tim Motz said the leaving of the note was not a racial hate crime. “It was a hate crime targeting religious practice,” Motz said.

      Most hate crimes are faked.
