NACOGDOCHES (KYTX) - Two men are in custody following an aggravated robbery Wednesday morning at a residence on Hasley Street.

Nacogdoches Police were called to a residence in the 400 block of Hasley Street at 9:36 a.m. Officers determined that two suspects had approached a residence and knocked on the door.

One suspect went back to a waiting vehicle and the other threatened a 69 year old male resident with a handgun. The suspect demanded money from the victim and when he advised that he had none, the suspect forced him at gunpoint to a residence next door, where the suspect then threatened a female victim demanding money.

A struggle occurred between the male victim and the suspect ,before the suspect fled the scene, northbound on Hasley and into an awaiting vehicle. The handgun used by the suspect was recovered by police at the scene.

Just over an hour after the call, officers located a suspect vehicle and two suspects on Leroy Street at Railroad. The individuals arrested are 18-year-old Devonte Brown, and 19-year-old Zachary Charqwan Brooks, both of Nacogdoches. They have each been charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and are in custody pending arraignment.

The male victim in the robbery was transported to a local hospital for treatment of a hand injury sustained in the incident.
