Police in Gary, Indiana are calling the beating of a 14-year old boy a hate crime. Angel Garcia's mother says he has a broken nose, a black eye and at least 12 bruises, after being attacked by fellow students Wednesday. The teen's mother says they told him they did not want any white children on the school bus.

Police say they arrested one teenage suspect Thursday and hope a security tape from the bus will help identify other attackers.
