GATESVILLE (March 5, 2013)--Gatesville resident Justin Trey Davis, 20, was indicted Tuesday in connection with a home invasion in December 2012 in which three local residents were attacked.

The Coryell County Grand Jury returned the indictment Tuesday charging Davis with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony.

Another Gatesville man, James David Robinson, Sr., along with an unnamed 14-year-old, was arrested after the break-in at a residence on Dec. 6, 2012 on Old Pidcoke Road.

The residents of the house were attacked with bottles and knives, Gatesville police Chief Nathan Gholke said at the time of the arrest.

The juvenile was detained for a short time and then was released to his parents, Gholke said.

Robinson remained in custody Tuesday in the Coryell County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling $70,000, charged with four counts of burglary of a habitation with intent to commit another felony and one count of engaging in organized criminal activity.

A police report shows that officers were sent to the home after residents there reported they'd been attacked and beaten by three men who broke into the home.

By the time officers arrived the suspects had fled, but within an hour Davis, Robinson and the juvenile were located at a residence on Spindletop Street and arrested.

Gholke said the victims suffered minor injuries, but none had to be hospitalized.
