"He got into trouble for some crimes related to the theft and ended up spending several months in the children's room," added Chief McAllister.

"As an adult, he was again arrested for an incident related to robberies, and ended up spending another three months in adult jail as a result.

"Since his release, he has been unruly and has not returned to my family's home for several months," he wrote.

The police chief said he was torn between the desire to protect his son and the oath he took as a leader of law enforcement.

In the end, he decided to help the Manteca Police Department find Tyrone to arrest him.

"My wife and I worked with Manteca PD to help them locate and arrest him.

"Now he faces serious charges for serious crimes for which, if convicted, he will spend a considerable amount of time in prison." My family is shocked. His sisters (one corporate and the other about to start law school) do not understand any of this.

"It is difficult for us to understand how one of the three children who grew up with the same parents, under the same roof, with the same rules and the same values ​​and the same character, could get so lost.

"We just do not know why or how we got here." In the eyes of the public, regardless of the irrelevance of the incident, the fact is that the father of the perpetrator of this despicable crime is a police chief, period.

"You can not expect the general public (our Sikh community in particular) to take into account any feelings that distinguish you from the integrity of my family's name, so I pray that, as a community, together with my family, we can overcome this and be even stronger as a result, "he said.

The images of the attack showed the young people approaching Singh and talking to him before jumping.

Singh, who struggles with English, later said he did not understand what the men were saying.

They left him with serious injuries that forced him to wear a collar.

Singh is one of two Sikh men who have been attacked in small Californian communities in the last week.

It is not believed that the two are connected.

Surjit Malhi was putting up campaign posters for local Republicans in the evening when two men ambushed him, throwing sand into his eyes before hitting him on the head, shoulders and neck on July 31.

Police said Monday they are looking for the two men who beat Malhi and painted a neo-Nazi symbol in his truck in what they called a hate crime.

Malhi, 50, said the men shouted at her to "return to her country". before painting with spray the same message and a symbol of white supremacy in his truck.
