Local News

Two people are being held in connection with the assault and robbery of a student on the Central Texas College Campus.

Bond was set at $500,000 for 30-year-old Jose Ricardo Martinez Garcia and $100,000 for 27-year-old Grace Jolyn Alcazar De Jesus, both charged with aggravated robbery.

They remained in the Coryell County Jail Tuesday.

The robbery occurred about 6:45 p.m. on July 11 at 203 Academic Drive, parking Lot F1 on the CTC campus.

A 19-year-old male CTC student was assaulted and robbed of his phone and Nintendo Switch game.

An arrest affidavit stated that the two suspects arrived in the dorm parking lot where the victim was talking to another man selling a phone.

Martinez-Garcia accused the victim of previously selling him a defective phone and an argument began.

At that point the affidavit stated Martinez-Garcia became angry and began assaulting the victim, being joined in the attack by De Jesus.

The affidavit stated that surveillance video caught the activity and showed the man and woman punching the victim several times about his head and body, with the victim put in a head lock and having his head slammed into the pavement.

The affidavit stated the responding officer found the victim visibly shaken and tearful and suffering abrasions and bruises to his face, neck, arms, and back.

Officers were able to develop Martinez-Garcia and De Jesus as suspects and they were later arrested by CTC Police and Killeen Police officers at a residence in Killeen.

They remained in the Coryell County Jail as of Tuesday afternoon.
