NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

David Stone, Nacogdoches County's constable for Precinct 4, and one of his deputy constables arrested a 28-year-old Lufkin man who allegedly went over to an acquaintance's home in the Kingtown community and made off with knives and other miscellaneous items after choking the man.

Josiah Braglin was booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail on Jan. 24 and was charged with robbery, which is a second-degree felony. He has since bonded out of jail.

According to Precinct 4 Constable David Stone, Braglin and another man were invited to an acquaintance's house in the Kingtown community, which is located off of FM 226 in Nacogdoches County on the evening of Nov. 20, 2012. The victim said that at some point, Braglin started acting strangely. Stone said Braglin attacked the man and "choked him out."

After the other man pulled Braglin off the disoriented victim, Braglin allegedly took a number of knives and other miscellaneous items from the home and fled the scene.

Stone said during his investigation, he learned that Braglin was on probation for a possession of a controlled substance charge. He and his deputies coordinated with the Angelina County Adult Probation Department, and lured Braglin to that agency's office in Lufkin, where they arrested him.

Stone said no charges are pending against the other man that went to the residence with Braglin. The constable said the second man had no idea that Braglin was going to rob the home's resident, and that the two men "parted ways" shortly after that.
