MANTECA, Calif. (AP) — A San Francisco Bay Area police chief said his family is "shaken to the core" after his son was arrested in the beating of a 71-year-old Sikh man .

The Sikh community in Union City, California , demanded to know on Tuesday night how Police Chief Darryl McAllister would ensure their safety after a video went viral showing the brutal beating of a 71-year-old Sikh man in Manteca, a city 60 miles away.

Darryl McAllister said he and his wife had helped the Manteca police track down his son.

"Words can barely describe how embarrassed, dejected, and hurt my wife, daughters, and I feel right now. Violence and hatred is not what we have taught our children; intolerance for others is not even in our vocabulary, let alone our values," the police chief wrote.

While neither Tyrone McAllister nor the teenager were charged with a hate crime, activists say the attack followed a number of beatings of U.S. Sikhs over the past decade. Groups that track hate crimes say assailants have sometimes mistaken Sikhs for Muslims, who have also been targeted in hate crimes.

McAllister is scheduled to appear in court at 1:30 p.m Californian time (2030 GMT). It was not immediately clear when the 16-year-old would appear in court or if McAllister had a lawyer.
