The parents of comatose 17-year-old Christian Rasner of the Bay Area city of Milpitas are crying for justice and seeking the immediate arrest of the unidentified assailants of the Filipino American honor student.
Spouses Maria and Greg Rasner appealed to the public Thursday, March 19, to come forward with any information they may have about the two attackers who were reported in their mid-20s and wearing all-black.
"It's not easy, but we're responding to interviews with the media because we want justice for my son. Christian does not deserve what happened to him," Maria told FilAm Star by phone.
"We will not be at peace, and we will not stop until those guilty are put behind bars," Maria, who is originally from Cebu City, added.
Authorities said the junior honor student was hanging out with a friend at the Westfield Valley Fair mall in San Jose when two men approached him and asked him if he was affiliated with gangs.
