A Bryan teen was arrested Monday after authorities say he robbed a man at a local park.
According to Bryan police, authorities responded to the area near Henderson Park around 6:30 p.m. on the report of a robbery. The victim said he had been sitting in his truck at the park when he was approached by two teen boys. One pointed a handgun at the man through the open driver’s side window and demanded he get out. Police say the teens took the man’s phone and wallet before fleeing. No injuries were reported.
The man returned to the area to search for the boys and found two teens he believed to be the assailants outside a home on Jordan Loop. Authorities met up with the victim and located Jecoruis Trevon Kennedy, 17, at a business on Groesbeck Street. The victim told police he was 90 percent sure Kennedy was one of the robbers, but was not the one who was armed.
Authorities were given permission to search the home on Jordan Loop. Police said they located a handgun in the bedroom of the homeowner’s son but could not locate the second person.
Kennedy is charged with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. He is being held in the Brazos County jail on $36,000 bond.
