Feds Charge Relative of Suspects in Somali Attack With Lying

KSAL StaffJune 25, 2016

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – Prosecutors have charged a Kansas man for allegedly lying to FBI agents who were investigating an attack on three Somali men in Dodge City.

An indictment unsealed Friday charges 27-year-old Diego Martinez of Dodge City with one count of making false statements. He is the brother and the half-brother of two of the alleged attackers.

The indictment alleges he lied to FBI agents to provide himself a false alibi for the time of the assaults.
Court records do not show an attorney.

His indictment is the latest fallout from the June 19, 2015, assault on the three Somali men, who were in the country legally, by Hispanic men outside the African Grocery Store in Dodge City.

Omar Cantero Martinez and Armando Sotelo were charged in April with federal hate crimes.
