JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A Johns Creek man called police on June 29 in response to an incident where he was assaulted by a man for unknown reasons. 

The man, who is of Asian descent, told police that the man threatened him at the gym in his apartment complex. The assailant threatened to kill him if he disrespected his wife before pushing him into one of the pieces of gym equipment, he told police. Police reported injury to the man’s back. 

A witness, who was training at the gym when the incident occurred, said the assailant made racially offensive statements before pushing the man who had not provoked the attack. 

The victim said he believes the unidentified suspect lives in his apartment complex, though he does not know where.

Footage from the gym cameras was not immediately available to police.
