Authorities say that they have found a suspect in the latest string of bias attacks in Staten Island.

WNYC reports that the suspect is 15 years old and faces assault charges and aggravated harassment as a hate crime.

An 18-year-old Latino man was robbed, beaten, and had anti-Mexican slurs yelled at him.

Four to five people were involved in beating the man, police say. Since April, the latest attack is the 10th against Mexican immigrants in Staten Island.
