LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two men from Snyder, 30-year-old Dexter Braziel and 30-year-old David Jerome Delce, were indicted by a Lubbock Grand Jury on Tuesday.

Both men were charged with aggravated robbery and are currently being held on $250,000 bond.

The two victims told police they were leaving work and were in the parking lot outside the game room in the 3500 block of Slide Road when they were robbed by Braziel and Delce.

One victim told police she got inside of her vehicle when Braziel came from behind her and tried to pull her out of her car. The victim told police it looked like Braziel was carrying what she thought was a shotgun. The victim told police Braziel hit her in the back of the head with the shotgun three times. The victim said Braziel took her purse and went back to his vehicle with another person.

The second victim told police she saw the suspects' vehicle and thought they were picking up the first victim from work. She said she saw Braziel get out of the vehicle he was in and attack the first victim.

She said a third suspect, who police are still searching for, got out of the vehicle with what appeared to be an AR-15-style rifle. She said the suspect pointed the rifle directly at her and told her to give him her cell phone and wallet. She told police she fell backwards and threw the cell phone and wallet at him.

Both men got into a vehicle and drove away. The first victim went to the hospital for her injuries.

Braziel and Delce were arrested on March 27, 2018.

Police say Delce worked at the game room where this happened. He told them he had been working at the game room for some time. He didn't know anyone in Lubbock because he was from Snyder and just got out of prison.

He said he moved to Lubbock to get away from trouble in Snyder. He also said he knew he wasn't supposed to be at the game room due to him being on federal probation.

Police say Braziel and Delce communicated via telephone before and after the robbery. Braziel is seen on surveillance footage arriving at the location of the robbery in a vehicle that he drives.

Police say there could be more arrests in this case.
