2 arrested in attack of Sikh man at Manteca park

MANTECA (KRON) - Manteca police have arrested two teens in connection with the attack of a 71-year-old Sikh man at Graystone Park Monday morning. 

Police say numerous tips assisted authorities in identifying 18-year-old Tyrone McAllister and the 16-year-old boy.

McAllister is being processed at Manteca PD before being transferred to SJCO Jail on the following charges:

  • Attempted Robbery
  • Elder Abuse
  • Assault with a Deadly Weapon 

In response to inquiries about whether McAllister is the son of Union City Police Chief Darryl McAllister, the Union City Police Department issued the following statement: 

"Chief McAllister confirmed that his estranged son, Tyrone Keith McAllister, is one of the two suspects arrested. Chief McAllister’s status as a law enforcement leader has no bearing or relation to the case whatsoever, but he is devastated by how much the nature of his son’s actions are such a departure from everything he has stood for in his personal life and 37 year career of compassionate, engaging police work. He and his wife worked with Manteca PD to help track down and arrest Tyrone this morning, as Tyrone has been estranged from the family and their home for some time. Chief McAllister expresses deep concern for the victim and the victim’s family and he remains steadfast that his son, an adult, must be accountable for his actions."

Chief McAllister issued a statement directly to the public via Facebook: 

The teen is being processed at Manteca PD before being transferred to SJCO Juvenile Detention Center on the following charges:

  • Attempted Robbery
  • Elder Abuse
  • Assault with a Deadly Weapon

"The public's assistance in providing information with this case was instrumental in identifying the suspects and allowed my investigators to make a quick arrest," said Supervisor Sgt. Miller.

Surveillance video shows one of the suspects kicking the victim to the ground.

After the victim gets up to defend himself, the same suspect kicks him back down to the ground.

Police say the man does not speak English and could not tell officers what the men said to him.

Last week, two men beat a Sikh man in Keyes and spray-painted a neo-Nazi symbol on his truck in what police are treating as a hate crime.

Surjit Malhi says he was putting up campaign signs for local Republicans when two men ambushed him.
