Booking photos for Aviation Ordnanceman Airman Recruit Dache Livermon, Boatswain’s Mate Seaman Devon Brown and Aviation Ordnanceman Airman Christopher Osborne, all arrested in relation to what investigators believe was a hate crime committed at Virginia’s Old Dominion University.

Three junior sailors and two civilian men are facing charges of assault, attempted robbery and a hate crime following an October incident at Old Dominion University, according to a campus news release.

The men are charged with attacking a student on the night of Oct. 19, holding him down and attempting to steal his wallet before leaving the scene without property.

The victim of the attack — a white male, school spokesman Jennifer Mullen Collins said — was likely targeted because of his race, investigators told WTKR-TV in Norfolk.

Aviation Ordnanceman Airman Christopher T. Osborne, 19, is assigned to the carrier Theodore Roosevelt at Norfolk. He is charged with attempted robbery, conspiracy, felony assault and battery “because of such person’s race,” and assault by mob, the release said.

Aviation Ordnanceman Airman Recruit Dache Lamel Livermon Jr., 20, is a Chesapeake, Va., native whose duty station was not included in personnel records provided by the Navy. He is charged with making a false statement to police.
