Man Who Racially Attacked Asian Man in Long Beach Exposed, Has History of Targeting Asians

The man behind the racist road rage incident in Long Beach, California has been identified and revealed to have had a previous encounter with another Asian man whom he tried to chase and fight.

Leroy (Roy) Zion reportedly works as a Field Adjuster at Liberty Mutual Insurance, according to a Twitter post shared by Alphasian.

Last week, Zion was caught on a dashboard camera harassing an Asian man while driving in Long Beach. He can be heard calling the man “little Asian piece of sh*t” and pounding on the car’s door before speeding off.

It turns out that Zion’s encounter last week was just one of two incidents that surfaced online. He was also caught on camera in April threatening to attack an Asian man as he was dropping his son off at school.

He thought I was the one tailgating him, smh. I hope by participating and sharing what I’ve experienced with Robin will help put a end to this type of stuff happening in this world right now especially to this great city we live in known as Long Beach, a diverse city everyone Loves. Carry on my friends,” the Asian man, Saphana Nuon, wrote in the comment section of the Facebook group Asian Social Issues.
