Investigators identified the younger McAllister by connecting several pieces. The night before the attack, police stopped a car for a traffic violation. The officer’s body camera footage shows McAllister in the car, as a passenger, wearing the same clothes seen in the attack, said Manteca Police Sgt. Stephen Schluer.

Also, McAllister had recently gotten out of jail, and investigators found Twitter and Snapchat posts indicating that he needed money and planned to rob people, Schluer said. He posted a photo in the same clothing seen in video of the attack.

The elder McAllister said his son had been estranged from his family for several months after he began to “lose his way” a couple of years ago with a bad crowd. The police chief said his son spent several months in juvenile hall, and later three more months in jail, for theft-related incidents.

Second attack on a Sikh man , this time in Manteca. Chief Darryl McAllister confirmed that his estranged son , 18-year-old Tyrone Keith McAllister, was arrested along with a 16-year-old male whose name has been withheld.

“Since being released he has been wayward and has not returned to our family home for several months,” the chief, who helped Manteca police track the 18-year-old down in Modesto, wrote in his Facebook post.

“My family is shaken to the core,” McAllister continued. “His sisters (one corporate and the other about to start law school), are at a loss to understand any of this. It's difficult for us to comprehend how one of three kids who grew up with the same parents, under the same roof, with the same rules and same values and character could wander so far astray. We simply don’t know why, or how we got here.
