Two Eunice men are charged with second-degree battery after they allegedly beat up a man they thought broke into their personal truck.
Eunice police arrested Ryan Daville and Garrett Daville Monday afternoon. Garrett Daville is also charged with aggravated assault with a firearm. Ryan Daville faces a second charge of being a principal to aggravated assault with a firearm.
According to a police report obtained by KATC, the brothers parked their vehicle at the fire station and walked to a nearby bar. When they returned, they found a window was broken and a purse had been stolen.
The report says the pair spotted the victim walking away from the area with a crescent wrench in his hand. Police say the brothers chased the victim down an alley and into a parking lot next to Eunice City Hall. The brothers then allegedly pulled the victim to the ground before punching and kicking him.
The report also states that Garrett Daville pointed a gun at the suspect.
According to the police report, the victim suffered from severe facial bruising.
No one has been charged in connection with the truck burglary.
