Four suspects are in custody at the McDuffie County jail on charges of robbery and aggravated assault.
Brandon Hudson, 17, of Fuller Street in Warrenton, and his nephew Mario Demarcus Hudson, 24, of Phelps Drive in Warrenton, were arrested on warrants during a traffic stop Sunday night, according to a Thomson police report.
Dantavius Bray, 23, of Pecan Avenue in Thomson, was arrested on a warrant during a traffic stop March 7. Gene Reese, 22, of Hall Street in Thomson, was arrested on a warrant during a traffic stop on March 8, according to police.
On March 2, the report said, the four followed Jamian McCord and Asha Booker to a residence in Thomson.
McCord said the suspects jumped him in the yard, kicking and punching him on the head and the body. Booker said that when she intervened Brandon Hudson hit her in the head with his fist, knocking her glasses off.
Booker said that Reese removed McCord's new Nike sneakers from his feet. The suspects took McCord's black cell phone, McCord and Booker said. McCord and Booker said that the suspects accused McCord of stealing money from Mario Hudson's girlfriend.
McCord's right eye was swollen, and he was taken to McDuffie County Regional Medical Center for treatment, the report says. McCord also had visible injuries to other parts of his body. Booker had visible swelling on the head, the report says.
Capt. Jamie Bridges and Sgt. Marquis Murray of the Thomson Police Department tracked the suspects' vehicle to 521 Dell St. in Thomson, but they fled, the reports says.
Brandon Hudson was also charged with robbery by intimidation and cruelty to children in the first degree. On March 10, Hudson stopped a juvenile on Dell Drive in Thomson and demanded $20, police said. When the juvenile refused to give Hudson the money, Hudson grabbed him by the throat and choked him.
The suspects are awaiting bail, Captain Bridges said.
