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.
