Bryan Police caught up with a fugitive they believed to be armed and dangerous Wednesday night.

Edward Sylvester Hodges, 44, was taken into custody and charged with aggravated robbery.

According to police, Hodges was walking through a pasture near Suncrest and Cunningham in Bryan. Hodges told police that he had been living in the woods.

Officers tracked Hodges' footprints through the woods and to a fence across from his girlfriend's home.

His girlfriend claims Hodges tied her to his bed and beat her with his hands, a belt and a wire coat hanger until he passed out and she was able to escape.

Hodges is being held at the Brazos County jail with bond set at $500,000.
