Two Biddeford men face federal hate crime charges for allegedly assaulting an African-American man in a 7-Eleven parking lot in April. The Department of Justice says Maurice Diggins and Dusty Leo were indicted by a grand jury Monday.
The indictment alleges that while the victim was walking across the parking lot, Diggins and Leo drove up in a pickup truck at high speed. One of them yelled “who’re you eyeballing?” and then used a racial slur.
Donald Clark, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Maine, describes what happened next.
