Arizona man accused of racially motivated assault

PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Northern Arizona authorities say a Cornville man is in custody in connection with an alleged racially motivated assault last December.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say 25-year-old Logan Spude is being held without bond in suspicion of aggravated assault, intentional injury to another and disorderly conduct.

Detectives discovered Tuesday that Spude already was incarcerated at the Camp Verde Detention Center on unrelated charges.

Witnesses say 61-year-old Marvel Warren was assaulted in the parking lot of a bar in the Village of Oak Creek on Christmas morning 2011.

Warren, who is black, told deputies that a man yelled racial slurs at him and then punched him in the face, allegedly causing serious damage to his right eye.

Detectives say it took months of interviews to identify Spude as a suspect.
