CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — Police say a 22-year-old man has been arrested for investigation of a hate crime and assault with a deadly weapon during an April 4 bus attack in Carlsbad.
Police Sgt. Mickey Williams told the San Diego Union-Tribune that Arturo Santiago was arrested Wednesday when he arrived at a probation office in Vista on another matter.
Police allege Santiago hit the victim on the head with a glass bottle and uttered racial slurs in an unprovoked attack on a North County Transit District bus. Police say the victim was hospitalized but has recovered.
A Carlsbad officer recognized Santiago from video surveillance and police had been searching for him.
He is on a no-bail probation hold and scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
No phone number is listed for Santiago in Vista.
