NEW YORK -- Police arrested a 15-year-old suspect Monday in the latest hate crime attack against a Latino on Staten Island. The NYPD did not release the suspect's name due to his age, but said he is facing charges of second degree robbery, assault and aggravated harassment as a hate crime. Police are looking for at least one other suspect in the beating of an 18-year-old Latino man. Police said this is the tenth possible hate crime attack in Staten Island against a Mexican immigrant since April.
