Victims turn the table on robber

WACO, TX (KXXV) - A 32-year-old Waco man is in the McLennan County Jail on robbery charges after the people he tried to rob took the law into their own hands.

Waco police say the robbery happened in the 1100 block of Lawrence Dr. in South Waco, about 4 a.m. Tuesday morning. Police say a man approached the first victim in a shed located in the backyard of a home. The man, later identified Darrell Lee Brown, pulled a gun, and demanded the other man's money.

Brown then asked for another man by name. When Brown was told the man he was looking for was in the house, he told the victim to go get him. Brown then demanded money and other items from the second victim.

When they all got outside, the two victims then jumped Brown and began wrestling him for the gun. During the struggle, one of the victims pulled a knife and stabbed Brown. They held Brown until police arrived.

Police took Darrell Lee Brown to be check out. When it turned out his wounds were superficial, they took him to the McLennan County Jail on two charges of aggravated robbery.
