San Francisco sources reported that an elderly Sikh man was viciously attacked in California, leading to fears among the community that he may have been a victim of hate crime, the media reported. Earlier on Wednesday, two teenagers aged 16 and 18, were arrested in connection with the assault on Sahib Singh Natt, 71, in Manteca which took place on Monday morning.
Meanwhile the older teen is the son of the police chief of Union City. Accordingly surveillance footage from a nearby home released by the Manteca Police Department allegedly shows Tyrone Keith McAllister, son of Union City Police Chief Darryl McAllister, and a 16 year old boy confronting Natt, who was taking his daily walk Monday morning along Greystone Park on Turquoise Way.
Moreover the footage shows two people walk up to
Natt at around 6 a.m. when one of the individuals, wearing a dark hoodie and
jeans, suddenly kicks him to the ground. The attacker, identified by police as
McAllister, and another assailant then walk out of frame, leaving Natt writhing
in pain on the ground. The video then shows the suspect charging back and
delivering at least three kicks to Natt’s head and upper body before yelling
something inaudible and fleeing the scene. Moreover the supporters, community leaders and neighbors of the victim
voiced their concerns about the attacks.

Meanwhile the growth, however, declined from last year’s 12%, indicating, to an extent, the cost-sensitivity of Indian students in choosing the US as their higher education destination, with a weak rupee causing a steep rise in the cost of living there.
