Police searching for suspects in Alhambra hate crime*

Updated 10.23.13 at 10:15 a.m.:

Police are still searching for information related to Monday's hate crime in Alhambra. As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, no suspects have been identified, said Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department.

The victims, a black family of four with young children, are staying with family or friends during the investigation, the Pasadena Star-News reports. The family has lived at the residence for three years.

“They are a sociable family who fit in and have never had any trouble (in the neighborhood),” neighbor Guy Hashimoto told the Star-News. “I was home when it happened, but I didn’t see or hear anything.”

If anyone has information about this crime, please contact the Alhambra Police Department at (626) 570-5168.

A black family was the victim of Monday's hate crime in Alhambra, the Los Angeles Times reports. A resident returned to their home on the 2000 block of Midwickhill Drive Monday afternoon to find the N-word, swastikas, and other racial epithets spray painted in every room, belongings smashed, and the smell of bleach and vinegar in the air.

“It’s no question, the worst thing in 24 years of law enforcement I’ve ever seen,” Sgt. Jerry Johnson of the Alhambra Police Department told NBC4.

The crime is still under investigation.

  1. I am horrified that this hate crime took place. I live in this neighborhood and also have small children. Such acts incite fear and tear away at the fabric of the community. I wish there could be a community statement against such acts to show that residents support each other and do not tolerate such hateful acts.
