After allegedly being called a “wetback” by a woman at an upscale apartment complex, a worker had a cup of scalding hot coffee thrown in his face.
Miguel Sanchez and a coworker say they had arrived at a building in the Century City neighborhood of Los Angeles’ Westside to do some work.
Sanchez says they were accosted by an irate woman, with two small dogs — who physically blocked them from entering.
“She was calling us wetbacks, and that we were probably there to steal stuff,” Sanchez told KTLA. “After all those racial comments on us, I got my phone out and started recording.”
Sanchez also called police and can be heard saying, “There’s a lady being super racist and crazy right now. She doesn’t let us in; we work here.”
Showing the woman the garage remote and unit keys they were given by the owner of the unit who had hired them only fueled the woman’s anger.
“She took two steps forward and she threw the coffee directly at my face,” Sanchez reported.
Fearing negative employment outcomes, Sanchez did not press charges.
“I can make a difference in this world, knowing that if I act like this, maybe it will make others think that we’re not so bad, just the color my skin or the job that I do,” he said.

Law enforcement files discredit Brian Kemp’s accusation that Democrats tried to hack the Georgia election
It was a stunning accusation: Two days before the 2018 election for Georgia governor, Republican Brian Kemp used his power as secretary of state to open an investigation into what he called a “failed hacking attempt” of voter registration systems involving the Democratic Party.
But newly released case files from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation reveal that there was no such hacking attempt.
The evidence from the closed investigation indicates that Kemp’s office mistook planned security tests and a warning about potential election security holes for malicious hacking.
Kemp then wrongly accused his political opponents just before Election Day — a high-profile salvo that drew national media attention in one of the most closely watched races of 2018.
