Nacogdoches man who tried to rob victim at gunpoint accepts plea deal of 5 years

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - One of two men who were arrested in December 2013 for trying to rob another man at gunpoint at a Nacogdoches home accepted a plea bargain deal of five years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice Wednesday.

Zachary Charqwan Brooks appeared in Judge Edwin Klein's 420th Judicial District Court for a plea bargain hearing Wednesday. As part of the deal, he pleaded guilty to a third-degree felony aggravated robbery charge.

According to the text of the indictment obtained by East Texas News, Brooks threatened the victim with a gun and robbed him.

A previous East Texas News story stated that Nacogdoches Police officers were called to a home in the 400 block of Hasley Street in December of 2013.

Officers learned two suspects had knocked on the door of a home, and one walked back to a vehicle before the second man threatened the 69-year-old victim with a handgun.

The suspect demanded the money and the man said he did not have any, according to the report.

The suspect then forced him to a home next door, where the suspect then threatened a woman and demanded money. A struggle then occurred between the male victim and the suspect, and the suspect ran away from the home and into the vehicle. He left the gun behind.

Just over an hour after the call, officers located a suspect vehicle and two suspects on Leroy Street. They arrested Brown and Devonye Brown. Brown also pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery in June of 2014 and accepted a plea deal of five years in a TDCJ prison.

The male victim was treated at a Nacogdoches hospital for a hand injury.
