BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) - Three people, including a teenager, were sent to the hospital on Mother's Day after they were attacked at a local gas station. Officials say the incident was unprovoked and do not believe it was a robbery attempt.
Officials say a family - a 36-year-old male, a 41-year-old female and a 14-year-old female - stopped at a gas station located at the intersection of Scenic and Plank at roughly 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 12. As the man was waiting in line to pay for his gas, he was approached by the suspect.
Investigators with the Baton Rouge Police Department say the suspect, Donald Ray Dickerson, 41, walked up to the man and said "you're in the wrong neighborhood and you're not going to make it out." Dickerson then began to punch the victim in the face.

Where are the federal hate crime charges?
When good old fashioned street justice returns to prominence in America, and it will, I am not going to feel bad in the slightest.
If that POS had done that to me he would have gotten his head blown off.
“I was with the family today Unfortunately, Yes it is a hate crime. To tell someone “you’re not going to make it out”, is a death threat either way you slice that cake. The 14 year old bit a chunk out of one of the attackers shoulders and pulled hair out to try to save her mom who is currently recovering from breast cancer and been through hell the last 18 months.”
The family’s ‘crime’? Being white in a black neighborhood.
If a group of whites were to have assaulted a black family, it’d be national, no INTERNATIONAL news.
This happens and the largest local media source (The Advocate, Channel 2 WBRZ-ABC affiliate) doesn’t even cover the story.
Not even LOCAL news covers this story because they are afraid of ... what? Justice?
Why even bother to comment? Their prezzy is alright with this as is the msm and half of congress. The other half is gutless.
The charges should be upgraded against the person who knocked the wife down and caused her to hit the concrete and be knocked unconscious...
Good grief...do these fools really think those dreadlocks do anything but make them look ridiculous! He looks like he has a whirly-bird on his head or a tarantula!!
....”All three defendants, Dickerson, Bessye & Simmons have had run-ins with the law prior to Sunday’s incident”...
Are we surprised?
And I would do it without blinking an eye.
These savages need to be dropped without a second thought, it's past time.
Just watched an older flick called “Falling Down” with Michael Douglas......he did just that....didn't give a crap any more and simply went on a spree whenever any of the thugs harnessed him.
He looks like he has a whirly-bird on his head or a tarantula!!”
...the ladies love it! ~sarc
>>”Where are the federal hate crime charges?”
Two guys assist a primary 41-yo perp in engaging in felony assault...
...a hate crime at that...
...leaving one of the two female victims unconscious (the article doesn't say which female victim was unconscious, but does say a 24 yo & 22 yo each physically assaulted a female)...
...and yet they are treated almost like "Here's a speeding ticket...be on your way?" ????????????????????
(The article says...and then ends with: "The 41-year-old female attempted to intervene and stop the attack. When she did, she was allegedly attacked and hit by Devin Bessey, 24. The 14-year-old victim also attempted to intervene, but she was then hit by Ashley Simmons, 22. Both Bessey and Simmons were charged with Simple Battery...Bessey and Simmons were both released at the scene with a criminal summons for their misdemeanor charge.")
Shame on the Baton Rouge P.D.!!!
More evidence people need to lawfully carry a weapon to protect themselves!!!!! (Because the P.D. won't -- even when they have the felon-perps in their presence! They will just slough off felony assault like a moving vehicle violator!)
Had it happen to me ...alone..on my bike...
Only had to flash my shoulder rig and say “I will get gas where ever I want”...
had em looking at me ...but they didnt say shit while I pumped my gas and left..
“Bessey and Simmons were both released at the scene with a criminal summons for their misdemeanor charge.”
It would be ironic if they failed to appear in court. Ever.
gotta have the wife pump the gas while you cover security detail these days.
I pumped gas with my left hand while I held a .357 in my right once... while thieves literally circled my truck. One wrong move and it was BBQ time.
