MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Bloomington man accused of stabbing and biting a man in Minneapolis allegedly told police he hates Muslims.

According to criminal charges, 47-year-old Kelvin Porter admitted to police that he tried to stab a Somali man in the neck.

Police say Porter, the victim and another man were on a Minneapolis sidewalk when Porter began acting aggressively.

Police say the victim raised his fists and Porter stabbed him several times and bit him in the face.

The Star Tribune reports the victim was treated at the scene.

Porter's attorney, Gregory Renden, says the charges are accusations at this point and Porter is presumed innocent.

The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling for hate charges.
