A Washington, D.C. man with a history of going on racist tirades against his African-American neighbors has been convicted of a hate crime after he spat in a Black woman’s face during an encounter in 2020. 

According to The Department of Justice, 33-year-old Gueorgui Iskrenov’s February 1 conviction came after he was found guilty of bias-related assault. Per evidence from the government, the July 2020 incident occurred when Iskrenov’s African-American neighbor was walking her service dog and crossing her apartment’s exit ramp. 

Iskrenov is said to have speedily driven his car towards the exit ramp, nearly hitting the victim and her dog. And when the woman told Iskrenov to be careful, he started hurling racist and sexist slurs at her. He also deliberately spat in the victim’s face. Authorities said the spit landed on the Black woman’s glasses and her hair. 

“Iskrenov drove away and was arrested 23 days later after he was positively identified,” the statement said. “The government’s evidence at trial showed that Iskrenov had a history of racist tirades against African-American neighbors.”

Iskrenov’s sentencing hearing is set to take place on Thursday.
