A Sikh man was the victim of a brutal hate crime, on September 25th in Richmond, California. Maan Singh Khalsa was stopped at a red light, when a group of men in a Ford pickup began screaming epithets at him. A beer can was lobbed at Khalsa’s vehicle during the encounter as well.

The men approached Khalsa’s car, punching him and pulling a knife. One of the attackers yelled “Cut his hair,” and Khalsa’s head was pulled through the car’s open window and his hair cut with the knife.

The 41-year-0ld Sikh man suffered multiple facial injuries in the attack, including a black eye, dental damage – as well as needing stitches on his hands. Police have arrested two men in connection with the attack. Chase Little and Dustin Albarado were named as two of the attackers, while the remaining assailants are still being sought by police. Albarado and Little are facing felony assault charges.

Anti-Sikh hate crimes are sharply on the rise. Just last week, a man in the Bakersfield, CA area was assaulted, with a soda thrown in his face. In that attack, onlookers did nothing to help the individual who was assaulted.
