US Airman sentenced in hate-fueled attack of Sikh man in Dupont Circle

WASHINGTON — Three years after an unprompted hate crime, a Texas man learned he’ll spend more than a year in prison for attacking a member of the Sikh religion in Dupont Circle.

Dylan Millhausen of Houston, Texas spoke at length to D.C. Superior Court Judge Ronna Lee Beck ahead of his sentencing, saying in part, he was remorseful for drunkenly assaulting a Sikh man in August 2016.

Members of the Sikh community listened in the courtroom as Mehtab Bakhshi shared his statement over the phone.

“He saw my turban, made up his mind, forcefully removed it and beat me until I was unconscious,” Bakhshi said, asking the judge to consider that incidents of hate crimes against Sikh individuals have been increasing across the country.
