Redby man pleads guilty to bloody assault
A Redby, Minn., man accused of attacking another man and leaving him in a pool of blood with a broken jaw and facial fractures pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to aggravated assault, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney's office.
Roy Randolf White Sr., 31, could face a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. His sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
On Sept. 2, tribal police were called to a home on the Red Lake Indian Reservation and discovered the 35-year-old victim lying on a cement porch in a pool of blood, according to an FBI affidavit. Witnesses told police White kicked and punched the victim several times.
The victim was treated at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, where he was intubated to help him breath and underwent surgery to have two plates inserted in his face, the release states.
The release says White fled following the assault, but authorities found him hiding in the back of his vehicle. Witnesses reported that White was angry with the victim because he apparently had dated White's former girlfriend.
