Police are looking for two suspects involved in an alleged hate crime after a California Sikh man was brutally beaten as he placed campaign signs for a Republican congressman along the road.

Surjit Malhi, 50, has been instrumental in his community with helping the homeless, serving victims of fires and supporting the Stanislaus County GOP, KOVR-TV reported.

But last week, while Malhi was placing campaign signs for Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., along the side of a road in Keyes, two men approached him, throwing sand into his eyes and beating him in the head and chest, police said.

The assailants allegedly told Malhi to “go back to your country” and even spray painted that message onto the side of his white truck.

“It was very scary,” Malhi told KOVR, adding he was afraid the men were going to shoot him.

Casey Joyce Musgrave, who said she is a friend of Malhi’s child, posted a photo of the truck on Facebook. It has since been shared more than 100 times.

“Just so everyone knows, violent acts of racism are happening in your area,” Musgrave said on social media, adding that Malhi has done “a lot to help his community” since he’s lived in it for the past 35 years.

Malhi credited his turban, worn as a symbol of faith among Sikhs, from “saving” him from further injuries. However, he has said he suffers from headaches and dizzy spells since the attack.

Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson told the Modesto Bee that police are looking into the attack as a potential hate crime and assault with a deadly weapon.

“This is a random despicable criminal act against a member of the Sikh community,” Christianson told the newspaper.

Since the attack, Malhi told KOVR that others in the community have banded together to help him – including members of CrossFit ParaBellum.
