REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A Filipino teenager was stabbed in his home in Patterson, California on Monday morning by an intruder.

The Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department said the burglary suspect, 21-year old Sean Mccullough of Oakland broke into the teen’s home and stabbed him in the arm, after both of them got into a fight.

The teen was trying to leave the home, after police advised him to leave the property as officers were on route. It was then that he encountered McCullough, who was also about to leave the house.

After stabbing the teen, McCullough reportedly tried to get away with the help of a second suspect, 22-year old Sharde Smith of Stockton. But their vehicle ended up crashing onto a patrol car.

Both suspects have been arrested.

      Jorge … So I guess only Blacks commit crimes and fight. Where is your outrage against that man who killed a family and kidnapped the daughter? Oh, I forgot that happen to be a white man that did that, so it don’t count. How about the Filipinos that where brawling in the street? Oh, sorry again they weren’t Black so it’s okay. You are a Racist, bigot, who only picks and choose what to be angry at. The bottom line is a thug is a thug no matter what they look like or what color they are. To you crime is okay, just as long as it isn’t committed by someone who’s Black.

      Yes he is black, we all know that… But why elaborate the race?? We all know that all human beings are capable of doing such crimes, black, white, asian, hispanic, etc. There’s just no need to point out he’s black, we all could see what race he is.

        @What??? … People like Jorge are impossible to reason with. They just arrested a Filipino man for killing this girl. Does that make all Filipinos bad? Nope, just that one. They arrest a Filipino Immigration Lawyer for immigration fraud. That certainly should make all Filipinos bad. Again I say nope, just that one. Jorge suffers from what some make call Bigoted selective outrage; I just call it being ignorant. A criminal is a criminal, no matter where he/she is from or what color they are.
