Family Asks for Full Prosecution in Attack at NoHo Drive Thru


Leaders of various Filipino immigrant-support groups rallied in Van Nuys Friday in support of a family who were attacked and subjected to racial slurs at a North Hollywood drive-thru last month.

The group, including the Filipino Migrant Center, the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns and Migrante Los Angeles, were joined at the rally by members of the Roque family and their attorneys, who called for the alleged assailant to be prosecuted to the full extent possible.

According to the family, Nerissa Roque, 47, and Patricia Roque, 19, were waiting in the drive-thru of a McDonald’s restaurant in mid-May when their vehicle was struck from behind by another car. The other driver, uttering anti-Asian slurs, eventually got out of his vehicle and approached the women, threatening to “kill” them, according to the family.
