BRYAN - A man is recovering Monday after police say he was jumped by a group of men who stole his headphones.
Police say it happened around 11:30 Sunday night. They say Jose Alfredo Rios Junior was walking near the intersection of Olive Street and Hilltop when a group of men reportedly came at him from behind with metal pipes and hit him in the head. Rios told officers that the group of men wanted his Beats by Dre Headphones. Rios ran from the group to a nearby house. When officers found Rios, he had a red and swollen forehead, his elbows and knees were scraped and bleeding and his right hand had blood on it. According to the arrest reports, paramedics who checked Rios out said he suffered a concussion.
Police say a witness, who saw the alleged robbery, called Rios and told him the group of men were standing near a parked car at the Saddlewood Apartments.
Officers found a pair of broken glasses belonging to Rios at the scene of the assault. They also found his headphones with the group of men and several metal pipes.
Officers arrested Trevor James Thompson, 18, David Jenkins Grace, III, 17, and two juveniles. Grace and Thompson are being charged with Aggravated Robbery. Grace also had a criminal trespass warrant for the apartment complex. Both are in the Brazos County Jail.
