WACO (April 17, 2014) Indictments charging aggravated robbery, injury to a child and sexual misconduct with children were among 97 true bills returned Wednesday by the current session of the McLennan County Grand Jury.

Those included an indictment naming Williams Trevunta Brown, 20, on a two-count charge of aggravated robbery in connection with the January 4 robbery of a North Waco smoke shop.

Brown remained in custody Thursday where he was ordered held on bonds totaling $401,000, according to online McLennan County Jail records.

Brown was charged in connection with the holdup at the Smoke Shop in the 1800 block of North 25th Street during which two men entered the store, robbed a clerk at the front of the store and forced another employee in the back to open the store's safe, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said at the time of the robbery.

Swanton said the two men, both armed with handguns, took a purse and a cell phone from the female clerk at the front of the store, then went into the back and forced another employee to open the store's safe and hand over more cash.

The two men left the store on foot and no one was injured, Swanton said.

Brown was arrested at 2:50 a.m. the next day at a residence in the 1200 block of Paul Quinn Street, Swanton said.

Officers still are searching for the other suspect but they believe they know who he is, Swanton said.

Quentin Azriel Middleton, 25, was named in indictments charging him with three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Middleton was held Thursday in the McLennan County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bond.

He was arrested in late January on a warrant charging him with the sexual assault of a 4-year-old girl.

The incidents happened on Sept. 14, 2013 at an apartment complex in North Waco, an arrest warrant affidavit said.

Daniel Maestas was named in four indictments charging aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child.

Waco police arrested Maestas in January on a warrant issued in connection with several incidents of inappropriate behavior with two young boys that dated as far back as 2004, Swanton said.

Investigators obtained a warrant for Maestas after a referral from Child Protective Services concerning the assaults, which were reported to have happened at a location in Waco.

Robert David Sinniger was indicted on five counts involving sexual assault and indecency with a child.

Sinniger was named in a warrant issued September 20, 2013 that concerned the repeated sexual assault and indecency with a victim over a period of time beginning when she was 14 and continuing until she was 17-years-old, Swanton said.

The incidents happened at a Waco residence.
