Los Gatos, Redwood City Men Charged in Separate Hate Crime Assaults

Two men have been charged with hate crimes in Santa Clara County for separate assaults against an Asian American woman walking her dog in Los Gatos and a 93-year-old Persian American in San Jose. According to a press release today by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office, Richard Hanford, 62, of Los Gatos, told an Asian American woman: “This is America, (expletive deleted)” before striking her on a sidewalk in Los Gatos. David Greenburg, 56, of Redwood City, spit at an elderly San Jose Persian American man and told him: “Go back to your (expletive deleted) country.”

Both are charged with misdemeanor hate crime charges.

Graniterock Sunday-punched

Members of Operating Engineers Local Union No. 3 showed up at 4pm Sunday to close the cement and asphalt plant at Graniterock’s A.R. Wilson Quarry.

Before Monday crews punched in to start their weeks, picketers descended upon the company’s recycling plant at Monterey Highway and Capitol Expressway, at the sand and gravel facility in Hollister and at Graniterock operations in San Jose’s Berryessa district, Redwood City and South San Francisco.
