Police Idenitfy Ruth Street Assault Suspects

CORPUS CHRISTI - Police have identified the two men who held a couple against their will yesterday and robbed them.

23-year-old Bobby Ray Garcia and 26-year-old Oscar Brian Rocha have been charged with aggravated assault in connection with that incident.

One of the victims told police that he and his wife went to visit the men at a home on Ruth Street.

The man says the suspects attacked them and stole their money. They forced the husband into a jeep and drove off.

That's when police say they beat and threatened him with a gun. But the victim managed to escape.

He and his wife were both okay, but were pretty shaken up.

The two men were arrested. Police said the victims and suspects knew each other, but didn't say how.

Garcia and Rocha are also charged with robbery and unlawful restraint.

Rocha was also charged with drug possession after police found drugs in his pants pocket.
