COLLEGE STATION - A pair of men were arrested after police say they went to a College Station apartment following an argument. One of the men reportedly tried to slash a person at that residence with a knife.
Adrian Verduzco of Waco and Grant Northcutt of Tomball, both 21, were arrested. Northcutt faces a charge of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Verduzco was arrested for Criminal Attempt Burglary of a Habitation with Intent to Commit Assault.
College Station Police say officers went to The Lofts in the 600 block of Holleman Drive East around 1:15 a.m. Sunday. They believe earlier in the evening, there was an argument between Verduzco and people in one of the apartments at The Lofts. Verduzco reportedly vowed to come back with his friends and assault the apartment's occupants, including sending a text stating he was going to "kill those n****s."
Northcutt and Verduzco allegedly returned and tried to get in to the apartment. When one of the occupants tried to get Verduzco to calm down, a struggle between the two reportedly started. During that time, Northcutt is said to have pulled a kitchen knife and tried to attack the occupant.
Police believe the occupant dodged the knife, and even used Verduzco as a shield. No one was injured.
Verduzco and Northcutt retreated, and were stopped by police at the nearby parking garage. Authorities say the knife believed to have been used in the attempted assault was found in a trash can down from the apartment.
