A second man has been arrested in connection with an incident in which an individual was allegedly beaten, robbed and called racial slurs.
Jeffrey Scott Spencer of Proctorville was arrested Saturday and charged with robbery, civil rights violation and fleeing, according to Cabell County Magistrate Court documents. A second suspect, David A. Woodyard of Huntington, also was arrested Saturday and faces the same charges, court records said.
The documents state the suspects allegedly spoke racial slurs and punched the victim even after police arrived. After being told to stop several times by officers, the suspects allegedly fled from police but were caught shortly after.
