A San Francisco Bay Area police chief wrote in an emotional Facebook post that his family is "shaken to the core" after his son was arrested in the beating of a 71-year-old Sikh man.

Union City Police Chief Darryl McAllister wrote, "By now you are probably aware of news stories about a 71-year old Sikh man was accosted by two young men as he innocently walked down a Manteca sidewalk next to a park. The two men confronted the man, apparently in an attempt to rob him, but when the elder did not cooperate, one of the men violently kicked the man in the chest, catapulting him to the ground, and then kicked him again several times as he lay defenseless on the pavement."

McAllister went on to say that he is "completely disgusted in sharing with you that, later yesterday evening, I received a call from the Manteca PD that the suspect in this horrific crime turns out to by my 18-year old son."

Tyrone McAllister, 18, and a 16-year-old boy could face charges including attempted robbery, elder abuse and assault following Monday's attack in the city of Manteca, which is about 40 miles northeast of Union City.

Police said Sahib Singh — who doesn't speak English — was attacked while putting up campaign signs for local Republicans candidates in an upcoming local election.

Chief McAllister said that his son has been estranged from the family for several months, reportedly having committed several theft-related crimes and spending several months in juvenile detention late in his childhood.

"Words can barely describe how embarrassed, dejected, and hurt my wife, daughters, and I feel right now," McAllister said. "Violence and hatred is not what we have taught our children; intolerance for others is not even in our vocabulary, let alone our values. Crime has never been an element of our household, our values, nor the character to which we hold ourselves," he wrote.

My heart goes out to you Chief. We all have talked with good parents that had "bad" kids. Its heart breaking. Sadly in my many tears as a cop i have known many cops (many high ranking) who ha da "bad" kid. This society can take a good kid from good parent s and turn him in the wrong direction. I know that you and your wife will be looking inward to see 'where did we go wrong" but thats not always the case. We all have a relative or two that we are not proud of and wonder where the heck did "they come from anyway".

Good job Chief. I wonder what political leanings you have? My guess your like every other political hack that gets appointed for Chief in that messed up state called California.

Especially when the poor man was putting up REPUBLICAN campaign signs. Demonrats are the real racists.

Jeez Mark, give the guy a break! He owned up to the shame and put it out there. There are probably a few good cops in management positions who got in before the weirdoes took over the state and made the insane sane. Let's give him a hand for being a decent guy and owning up to his idiot son's crimes. I have 6 kids, ranging from 50 to 31 and they were all raised with the same values, yet my 41 year old is a criminal doper maggot and will never be a decent member of the human race, so I speak from experience.
