ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Nacogdoches woman is in jail following a grand jury indictment alleging she took part in the April beating and attempted robbery of a Pollok man.

Heather Kaye Richardson, 24, is charged with aggravated robbery.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Richardson was in the front seat of a vehicle with Levi Ouvre Kern, 19, of Lufkin, Scott Doss, 20, of Wells, and Norman Reed Thacker, 26, of Pollok. The three had picked up Thacker and told him they were going to the store in Pollok to buy diapers for Richardson's child.

According to the affidavit, they pulled into an oil well site where a white van was parked. Kern, Doss and Richardson got out of the vehicle and Eddie Joe Holt, 23, of Lufkin, and Jeromy Craig Holt, 20, of Lufkin, who were apparently already at the site, came in on the back passenger side, where Thacker was sitting, and started kicking and hitting him in the face, stomach, chest and legs, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit states David Jones Jr., 38, of Pollok, came through the other door and started kicking and hitting Thacker. They then ripped his shirt off and Jeromy Holt pulled a pocketknife out of Thacker's pocket, according to the report.

Thacker said they said "let's get his billfold. We need beer and gas money," but he was able to get loose and run home.

Thacker suffered two black eyes, bruising all over his body and his nose was broken in two places.

All other suspects in the case, except for Doss, have been arrested on the aggravated robbery charge.
