The man charged with beating an elderly man last year will possibly stand trial.
Tuesday, a Lubbock County grand jury indicted 20-year-old Jaffice Lee Harris III for burglary and robbery. Police say Harris broke into a home in the 3800 block of 48th Street back in November and beat a 74-year-old man with his own cane.
While it turned out the suspect lived only a few blocks away, police arrested him across town in connection with an attempted purse snatching at the United Supermarket at 50th and Avenue Q.
Harris is in the Lubbock County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
