Officials reported Monday that a California man was arrested in connection with a savage attack on a fast-food worker that caused her to lose an eye while defending a special-needs youngster.
According to the Antioch Police Department, Isaac White-Carter, 20, of San Francisco, was detained in nearby Hayward for last month’s attack at a Habit Burger in Antioch.

According to police, the victim, 19-year-old Bianca Palomera, was punched in the face many times and eventually lost her right eye as a result of the assault. Palomera was defending a youngster with a learning handicap who was being bullied by the suspect.
According to NBC Bay Area, the victim, 19-year-old Bianca Palomera, claimed the suspect yelled insults about someone she described as her coworker’s brother and threatened to “beat him up.” “That’s when I come in and say, ‘It’s not right what you’re doing,'” she told the television station.
The suspect appears to get in Palomera’s face and beat her in surveillance footage of the crime. Palomera fought back and was hit several times more. After a weeks-long investigation, the US Marshals Service detained Isaac White-Carter, 20, of Hayward, in connection with the incident on Monday morning. According to the statement, he was turned over to Antioch police and charged with felony counts of mayhem and aggravated assault causing grievous bodily harm.
This matter will be prosecuted by the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office, which did not immediately respond to demands for comment. The Antioch Police Department issued a statement expressing their “support and gratitude to the victim for assisting a community member in need.”
Palomera stated that she does not regret stepping in to assist. “This is probably the last thing I would’ve expected out of anything,” she told NBC Bay Area. “But I don’t entirely regret, you know, assisting, stepping in.” “Things could have gone far worse for my coworker’s brother.”
