2 arrests in Antioch hate crime

- Two people have been arrested in connection with a hate crime in Antioch in which a racial slur and swastika were painted on a victim's home.  

The vandalism occurred last Wednesday. 

Molotov cocktails were also thrown at the home, which caught the roof and bushes on fire. No one was injured in the incident.

According to the Antioch Police Department, 27-year-old Roy Charles Sorvari of Antioch and 25-year-old Christyne Gail McDaniel of Brentwood were both arrested after being interviewed by the Antioch Police Department.

Police believe there was a dispute between one person at the victim's home and one of McDaniel's relatives that led to the pair committing the crimes.

Both Sorvari and McDaniel face charges of conspiracy to commit- murder, mayhem, torture, assault with a deadly weapon as well as a charge of arson were filed against both Sorvari and McDaniel. They were also charged with hate crimes enhancements. Both McDaniel and Sorvari are being held on $1,290,000 bail at Contra Costa County Jail.

This case is still under investigation. Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to contact Det. Allendorph at (925) 779-6933.
