Chinese American man beaten by Korean Americans in alleged hate-crime attack, authorities say

Ann M. Simmons (Los Angeles Times) | February 24, 2011

Two Korean Americans were in jail Thursday, two others were released on bail and two more were being sought in connection with the robbery and assault of a Chinese American man in Diamond Bar in what authorities described as a hate crime.

The Feb. 6 incident began when the 25-year-old victim placed an order for takeout at a Korean restaurant in the 18300 block of East Colima Road in Rowland Heights, said Sgt. Steven Kim of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department’s Asian Gang Team.

A group of seven Korean American men were eating inside the restaurant when one of them approached the victim, whose name was not released, and asked if he was Korean. He responded that he was Chinese and shortly after received his order and left the restaurant.

The man who had approached the victim followed him outside, accompanied by five other men. Once outside, the suspects began beating the victim with their hands and feet “for no apparent reason,” Kim said.

The suspects then vandalized the victim’s car, “causing hundreds if not thousands of dollars in damage,” Kim said. It was later determined they had stolen the victim’s wallet and taken his GPS navigator.

Several bystanders intervened to stop the assault. Kim said the man “suffered numerous cuts and bruises all over his body, including a large cut on the top of his head, which required medical staples.”
