Let me preface this by saying this is a real news article that appeared in Thursday’s Gwinnett Daily Post (8/20).
BUFORD – Two Flowery Branch brothers are in jail after reportedly interrupting a threesome and beating a man in his own home.
Mark Robinson, 26, and Nicolas Robinson, 21, are each charged with false imprisonment and two counts of battery in the Aug. 1 incident. Mark Robinson also faces one count of criminal trespass.
According to Gwinnett County police, the pair showed up to a party at the victim’s Duncans Shore Drive home uninvited, but were allowed to stay provided they didn’t cause any trouble.
The agreement apparently didn’t work out.
The 23-year-old man, a Beef O’ Brady’s cook, told police he knew the brothers from the restaurant and that they had been barred at one point for “causing problems and fights.”
The man said he was in a downstairs bedroom with two women at about 4 a.m. when he noticed Mark Robinson standing in the doorway. He repeatedly told Robinson to leave and not to “disrespect his house,” reports said, to which Robinson replied he wanted to watch.
When the man tried to close the door, officers said, Robinson became angry, busted a beer bottle against another door and attacked the man. Soon after, Nicolas Robinson came downstairs shouting, “Don’t mess with my brother” and entered the fray, reports said.
The victim said he was held down and beaten, blacking out at one point.
One of the women said she tried to pull the brothers off the victim but was punched in the face and pushed to the ground before other partygoers could break up the melee.
The suspects fled before officers arrived, but were identified using a photo lineup, police said, allowing them to obtain arrest warrants. The brothers voluntarily came in for questioning on Aug. 10, according to police, and admitted their involvement.
Because of their cooperation, both men were allowed to go home and “get their affairs in order,” after agreeing to turn themselves in to Gwinnett County deputies.
It is unclear whether they failed to do so or if there was a miscommunication between agencies, but a sheriff’s department spokeswoman said Field Operations deputies arrested both men Monday night at their Countryside Drive home.
Both men remained jailed Wednesday.
