two arrested in sacramento hate crime beating

On Friday in Sacramento, police arrested two suspects in connection with the hate crime assault on 56-year-old Sikh cab driver Harbhajan Singh: Two suspects held in attack described as hate crime.

Pedro Ramirez and Johnny Morales turned themselves in Thursday evening to police and were arrested on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon and commission of a hate crime:
West Sacramento detectives and the Sacramento Police Department SWAT team executed search and arrest warrants Tuesday morning in the 3500 block of Binghampton Drive in the South Natomas area of Sacramento.

Ramirez was not at home, but detectives searched the residence for evidence related to the assault.

Sockman said detectives also are seeking two other suspects.

The cab driver told police that he had picked up four people, two men and two women, in Sacramento and driven them to West Sacramento, where two of the passengers assaulted him and demanded money.

One of the women tried to stop the assault and was beaten as well, officials said.

The driver fled when the passengers got out of the cab.
The assailants apparently called him anti-Islamic slurs as they were beating him. Singh is Sikh. These two racist dumbshits were too stupid to even consider the difference. Not that it mattered -- it sounds like just wanted someone to hate, and they had a guy wearing a turban right in front of them.

Detectives are still seeking two other suspects. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call West Sacramento Police Department Investigations at (916) 617-4960, or police dispatch at (916) 375-6474. More here: 2 Arrested In Alleged Hate Crime.
