Police on Staten Island have arrested one man, but are still searching for two others, wanted in a violent bias attack. A gas station security camera captured an image (seen above) of 23-year-old Joseph Sweeney just before the beating.

Detectives say Sweeney and two other men attacked 38-year-old Luis Maltez with baseball bats after an argument inside the gas station. At least one of the attackers used racial slurs against Maltez, who is Hispanic.
