Lake Charles, La. (KPLC) – Three Lake Charles men and a Houston man were arrested in connection with a robbery following a hit-and-run this month.
All four suspects were involved in the August 13 Ryan Street hit-and-run, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kayla Vincent said. When the driver of the other vehicle left the accident, the suspects followed him to his home on Perry Lane.
The suspects got out of the car at the man’s home and surrounded him, pulled him into the road and beat him while demanding payment, Vincent said. Witnesses reported that the suspects let the victim get up when they realized they were being watched, and they followed him to his front door.
The victim said he asked another person in the house to pay the suspects to leave, according to Vincent. While trying to send money using a mobile payment app, a suspect stole the victim’s phone, which detectives later discovered he had sent money from the victim’s account to his own.
Detectives found the suspects’ car, which showed damage consistent with the accident, Vincent said.
The suspects have been identified as Allen D. Johnson Jr., 21; Donald G. Wilson, 21; and Jaden Johnson, 20, all of Lake Charles; and Adrian L. Brown, 21, of Houston. The four were incarcerated at the Calcasieu Correctional Center on August 25, on two counts of larceny.
Allen Johnson and Wilson were found in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, Vincent said. They face charges of possession of Schedule I drugs with intent to distribute, as well as drug paraphernalia.
Allen Johnson and Wilson are being held on $85,000 bond. Jaden Johnson and Brown are being held on $80,000 bond.
The Lake Charles Police Department is investigating the accident.
