Two Houma men were arrested earlier this week after police said they severely beat and robbed a man using a baseball bat.
Hayes Domangue, 19, and Dredden Spencer, 18, are both charged with second-degree robbery and simple criminal property damage, the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office said.
The charges resulted from an incident that occurred on the morning of Jan. 23 at the 300 block of Capri Court in Houma.
Deputies found an 18-year-old male sitting in a yard without pants, authorities said. He was bleeding from his head and his face was swollen. Medical workers treated him on the scene and took him to a hospital.
Deputies learned the man had been severely beaten with a baseball bat, the Sheriff’s Office said. The suspects stole his cell phone and clothing, both of which were later recovered.
Following an investigation, Domangue and Spencer were linked to the crime and were taken into custody, the Sheriff’s Office said. Both men were booked into the Terrebonne Parish jail on $150,000 bails.
The case remains under investigation.
