LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two men charged in a violent attack at a north Lubbock motel were behind, less than 24 hours after we profiled them on NewsChannel 11's Most Wanted.

Desmond and Michael Taylor now move to the captured wall. Both men are charged with aggravated assault, for the fight that put Danny Mahaffey, 55, in the hospital with critical injuries. Lubbock police responded to the Sunset Motel on Clovis Highway, just before 5 a.m. Saturday.  They found Mahaffey unconscious in the front yard.

Court papers state the suspects punched and kicked Mahaffey in the head several times, and drug his unconscious body around the motel's front yard. Jailers booked Michael Taylor, 19, into the Lubbock County Jail just after 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. They booked Desmond Taylor, 29, into the jail about three hours later. Both men are held on a $50,000 bond.

Now, Desmond and Michael Taylor are on NewsChannel 11's captured wall. That brings the captured count to 40.
