LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

One day after a Lufkin man's arrest on charges of robbery, Angelina County District Attorney, Clyde Herrington, files a motion to dismiss the charges.

Lufkin Police Department arrested 19-year-old Clinton Earl Johnson Jr. on Tuesday, after receiving a call that an aggravated assault had taken place on June 12.

According to the Herrington, the investigating officer found that further information revealed the complainant at the scene presented the investigating officer with inaccurate information regarding the facts of the alleged offense. The motion was sent over to Angelina County Judge Billy Ball on Wednesday. The incident is still under investigation, but Johnson has been released.

According to the arrest affidavit, officers responded to a call from a Lufkin hospital. They were advised two male victims were allegedly being chased by a vehicle at the corner of South First Street and Menifee Street. When the victims stopped their vehicle, they identified Johnson as one of several male subjects involved in the chase.

The report states one of the men used a brick to hit one of the victims in the face, causing a five inch long cut, exposing his skull. The victim immediately fell to the ground. The man continued to hit the victim with the brick as the other victim attempted to fight the other men coming toward them.

The victim on the ground said he was bleeding and in bad shape when Johnson came running up to him and grabbed his shirt to pull him forward. The shirt ripped, as the victim said his forehead hit Johnson in the chest. The victim said Johnson yelled out in an amused voice, "Hey you busted his head open".

The victim said he attempted to keep Johnson from getting his wallet. Johnson, he says, reached in his front pockets looking for his cash. The victim said Johnson took the 53-dollars he had in his pocket.

Police arrested Johnson Tuesday and charged him with a second degree robbery felony.

Johnson was also indicted by an Angelina County grand jury in February, along with three other men accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl at a Hudson house.

The charges vary for the four Lufkin men. Clinton Earl Johnson Jr., 18, is charged with six counts of sexual assault. Clinton Earl Johnson Sr., 54, is charged with one count of sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child. Timothy Headly, 21, is charged with sexual assault of a child and Adrian Eugene Moreland, 18, is charged with sexual assault.

All four were arrested in April following a Hudson Police investigation in which the girl alleged the four took turns sexually assaulting her while they held her down on a mattress in the back yard of Johnson Sr.'s house.
