Judge sets bail at $25K for man accused of attacking Asian business owner

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A man accused of a hate crime for allegedly attacking an Asian business owner was given a bail of $25,000 during his court appearance Wednesday morning.

Anthony Joseph Dishari, 36, is facing charges of attempted robbery, battery resulting in substantial bodily harm, a hate/bias crime, and resisting a public officer.

He appeared in Las Vegas Justice Court for his bail hearing.

According to the prosecutor, Dishari went on a profanity-laced tirade yelling anti-Asian slurs at employees of a business in the 4000 block of S. Buffalo Drive. Police said the suspect left and returned before midnight and attacked the owner outside of the business.
