The FBI is leading an investigation into an attack on a foreign student in Brown County, Indiana.

Police say an 18-year-old Chinese student was taking pictures in downtown Nashville, Indiana when 59-year-old Dana Ericson hit her with a hatchet.

Ericson says he attacked her because he’s a white supremacist and hates Asians.

According to Ericson, the attack was an act of ethnic cleansing.

The FBI opened a civil rights case into the attack on Wednesday.

The 18-year-old student was treated and released from Columbus Regional Hospital.
