A California police chief has told of his disgust at learning his 18-year-old son is the suspect in the brutal beating of an elderly Sikh man earlier this week.

On Monday, 71-year-old Sahib Singh was attacked by two young men during his morning walk in Manteca, California.

The attack was captured by surveillance cameras and showed the two thugs beating the man while dressed in hoodies. One, who was wearing a black hoodie, was brandishing a gun.
