Four men robbed at gunpoint in Valley

Valley police arrested one man and are looking for another suspect in a robbery that occurred Wednesday night.

Police charged Gregory Felix Brooks of Valley with four counts first-degree robbery after he and another man allegedly robbed four men at gunpoint at around 6:30 p.m.

According to a Valley police department news release, six men were in their yard on Richmond Street when they were approached by two men.

One suspect pulled a handgun and robbed four of the men of their money.

The two robbery suspects then ran from the scene towards Boyd Circle.

The robbery victims followed them in their truck and caught one of the suspects, Brooks, on Boyd Circle.

At that point, Brooks reportedly pulled a knife and began swinging it at the robbery victims.

The victims took construction tools from their truck and were able to overpower Brooks and disarm him, Valley police Capt. Mike Reynolds said.

Brooks sustained several lacerations to his head and body and was taken by Valley EMS to George H. Lanier hospital.

He was treated and released last night, Reynolds said and was taken to the Chambers County jail.

Police are still looking for a second suspect. He is described as a black man between five-foot-six and five-foot-nine-inches tall, with dreadlocks and a small amount of facial hair.

He was last seen wearing a black pullover shirt, a white T-shirt and black jeans.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Valley police department at 334-756-5200.
