LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

An Angelina County judge approved a motion by the state to revoke the bail for a 21-year-old Lufkin man accused of robbing his grandmother and evading arrest Wednesday morning.

Katrina Carswell, a prosecutor for the Angelina County District Attorney's Office, made the motion in Judge Barry Bryan's 217th Judicial District Court.

By law, the state has seven days to ask for bond to be revoked on any person who is charged with a felony that still has other felony charges pending.

"The biggest problems is being able to get witnesses and file the motion and get a hearing set, get witnesses in and hear it within that seven day window," Assistant District Attorney Elmer Beckworth said.

Bryan approved the motion. As a result, Glawson will remain in jail until his case is resolved.

Glawson is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated robbery, a third-degree felony charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and a state-jail felony charge of evading arrest.

Glawson's arrest Monday night was the result of a joint effort by the Angelina County Sheriff's Office and the San Augustine County Sheriff's Office after the suspect allegedly fled from authorities on two separate occasions.

"We got word from individuals that had seen him, and we also put it out on our App," said Angelina Co. Sheriff Greg Sanches. "We started getting calls and we found the area he was at in San Augustine. We worked with the local sheriff and was able to capture him."

According to the arrest affidavit for one of Glawson's outstanding warrants, a Hudson Police officer was dispatched out to a residence in the 200 block of Providence Road in response to a disturbance at approximately 10:40 p.m. on Sept. 8.

The victim, Glawson's 72-year-old grandmother, told the Hudson Police officer that her grandson had come into her bedroom, awakened her and demanded that she give him the keys to her vehicle. She also said Glawson ripped the chain from her ceiling fan and struck her on the right arm with it, causing a 6-inch gash, according to the affidavit.

The victim told the officer that she didn't think Glawson struck her with the chain on purpose.

When Glawson's grandmother told him he couldn't have the keys to the vehicle because it didn't have insurance, he allegedly took a hand gun from her safe, loaded it, and again demanded the keys to her vehicle, the affidavit stated. This time, Glawson told her he would damage personal items in her home, like her TVs, if she didn't give him the keys.

The grandmother finally relented "out of fear for her own personal safety and property." Once Glawson had the keys to the vehicle, he left.
