Hate stabbing reported at San Dimas middle school

This from the Daily Bulletin:

SAN DIMAS – An Asian man was stabbed in the face and torso during a hate crime attack at Lone Hill Middle School on Tuesday evening.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies said the attackers – a 15-year-old boy and a man in his 20s – shouted racial epithets while stabbing the man. “They were shouting out ‘White power’ or something like that,” said sheriff’s Lt. Roxanne Hart.

A white man who was walking with the victim at the school at 700 South Lone Hill Avenue about 8:30 p.m. received cuts and bruises from being punched by the pair, Hart said.

Paramedics flew the Asian man to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition.

Deputies identified the 15-year-old suspect and arrested him. The man in his 20s was not in custody, Hart said.
