COLFAX, Calif. (KTXL) -- The Placer County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two men for an attack against a tree trimmer in Colfax on Saturday.
Video captured from the tree trimmer’s truck showed two suspects pull up in a 4-door Toyota pickup truck just after 2 p.m. Saturday on Canyon Way. Social media leads led authorities to 53-year-old Roger A. Lillie and 25-year-old Roger R. Lillie.
Both men are charged with assault with a deadly weapon, hate crime and conspiracy.
Deputies are investigating the assault as a hate crime because investigators said the men had no known connections to the victim and attacked him while hurling racist insults and slurs at him.
