A man has been held since late October on a racially motivated attack on an interracial family and their two multiracial children in San Francisco. Hosea Matavao was charged with three counts of assault, one count of endangering a child and one count of battery, according to the district attorney. He has pleaded not guilty.
We have been in touch with the DA's office. Four of the five charges have hate-crime allegations attached. Matavao 's original hearing was moved to December 6. Project RACE will continue to monitor this case.
