A Bryan resident accused in a March stabbing, a 28-year-old man authorities say caused a wreck that seriously injured another driver and a track coach from Sherman charged in connection to the sexual assault of a teenage girl at a Bryan motel were among 50 people indicted on felony charges by a Brazos County grand jury earlier this week.

Grand jurors meet twice monthly to decide whether there is enough evidence to move forward with prosecution in a case. An indictment by grand jury is not an indication of guilt.

• According to College Station police, around 2 a.m. March 7, authorities responded to an apartment at the intersection of Balcones Drive and Welsh Avenue. Cole Ray Schilling, 23, had called 911 and reported stabbing someone in the shoulder and bashing the victim’s head into the ground after the victim threw a rock. Authorities located the victim at a home in College Station. The man had two stab wounds to his back and head injuries, though he said he had difficulty remembering what happened.

Schilling was arrested May 9 on a warrant connected to the assault. On Thursday, Schilling was indicted on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Schilling remains in the Brazos County Jail on $50,000 bond.

• Bryan police said a wreck occurred just after 8 p.m. May 7 on West Villa Maria Road near Texas 47 when a truck driven by Edgar Francisco Perez-Vita left its lane and hit a sedan head-on. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, according to police.

According to authorities, Perez-Vita smelled of alcohol. An unopened beer can was removed from his pocket before he was taken to the hospital, an officer said in the report. He was indicted on a charge of intoxicated assault causing serious bodily injury, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Perez-Vita remains in the Brazos County Jail on an immigration hold.

• Keith Dequan Craddock Sr., 31, was arrested April 19 after authorities said he sexually assaulted a teen girl at a Bryan motel in July 2018.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, a 16-year-old girl told Sherman police in early September Craddock, who was the coach of the private Sherman Elite Track Club, had assaulted her. The girl said the Sherman team was in B-CS for a state track meet that was in College Station between July 26-29, 2018, and she was among a group staying at a motel on South Texas Avenue in Bryan.

On the night of July 28, the girl said she had been in Craddock’s room watching movies until about 2:30 a.m., at which time she went back to her room, took a shower and went to bed.

The teen said she was starting to fall asleep when Craddock used what she called a “coach’s key card” to enter her room, where he sexually assaulted her, authorities said. A report notes that the next day, Craddock purchased a box of condoms at a nearby convenience store and placed them in the teen’s luggage.

On Aug. 31, the girl’s sister, with whom she shares the luggage, found the box of condoms. On Sept. 1, the girl told her sister about the assault and authorities were called, the report states.

He was indicted on a charge of sexual assault of a child, a second-degree felony. He was released from the Brazos County Jail on May 2 on $100,000 bond.
