MANTECA (CBS13) – Authorities say arrests have been made in the broad daylight attack of a Sikh man in a Manteca neighborhood.

Sahib Singh Natt was attacked near Greystone Park on Monday morning. Loved ones say the attackers demanded money.

Surveillance video captured two people beating, kicking and spitting on Natt.

Wednesday, authorities announced they had made arrests in connection to the incident: 18-year-old Tyrone McAllister and a 16-year-old boy. Both teens are facing charges of attempted robbery, elder abuse and assault with a deadly weapon.

Manteca police confirm that McAllister is the son of Union City Police Chief Darryl McAllister. Investigators say Union City authorities have been in contact with them and helped in the case. Family says Tyrone has recently been estranged from them.

Investigators are still looking into whether the attack could be charged as a hate crime.

Detectives say numerous tips they got during the investigation helped them identify the suspects.

Tuesday night, hundreds of people gathered at the park just feet away from where the 71-year-old was attacked to rally in support.

This comes just days after another Sikh man in the Turlock area was the target of a hate crime.

Police do not believe the attacks are connected.

  1. The 16 YO should be charged as an adult. Both should get a lengthy prison sentence. The broken in these kids is not something which can be fixed.

  2. He’s a black Leftist Democrat, and the Sikh fellow was an Evil Republican, so it’s OK. >:-(

  3. Couple of animals who need to be put down hard.

    Both Union City and Turlock are very small unsavory areas. I escaped both, years ago and they have only gotten worse. Yes the perps are “animals’ probably high on drugs and needed money for more. The Sikh was old enough to have better sense than to wear that garb in an area like that. “When in Rome…..”I have no sympathy for those who come here expecting we will welcome them in spite of their trying to force their culture, laws, and customs on us.

  5. lol, California, wasn’t this just normal California day? Sucks when you support BLM and a sanctuary city and open borders community. Oh where oh where what will we do. Just make the old man apologize and we will forget it happened.
