An unidentified man claims that he, his wife and daughter were punched by Donald Dickerson (pictured) and others when the family stopped at a Baton Rouge, Louisiana gas station on Sunday night at 10 p.m. (video below).

According to Cpl. Tommy Stubbs, of the Baton Rouge Police Department, a man wearing a pink shirt was paying for his gas when Dickerson started making fun of him, notes WAFB-TV.

"The defendant [Dickerson] approached the white male victim," the police report stated. "The defendant told him he was in the wrong neighborhood and he was not going to make it out."

According to the police report, the male victim "was punched and knocked to the ground... He continued to struggle with the defendant and was eventually knocked unconscious, which later he awoke in the hospital."

The man's wife said that she "ran help her husband, she remembers falling to the ground and [being] knocked unconscious," said the police report.

Then the couple's teen daughter got out of the car and "observed a female punch her mother in the face, when her mother then fell to the concrete, hitting her head on the surface."

The daughter said she was also punched in the face.

Dickerson was arrested and charged with second-degree battery, while Devin Bessye and Ashley Simmons were released after a police officer wrote them a court summons for simple battery.

According to Cpl. Stubbs, all three defendants were not charged with felony second degree battery "because you have to have disfigurement for a second-degree battery charge, and only one victim had disfigurement and he was attacked by the one suspect that we booked."
