Two indicted for WP aggravated robbery

Daryn Hudson and Justin Baxter

A Parker County grand jury indicted Justin Michael Baxter, 35, and Daryn Allen Hudson, 34,on July 11 for aggravated robbery after the two broke into a home in Willow Park on April 4.

A Willow Park police officer was dispatched to a home in the 300 block of Willow Crest Drive at about 3:08 a.m. on April 4  on a robbery call.

“[The officer] made contact with the victim who stated two white males forcibly entered the back door of her home, held her at gun point and began ransacking her home. [The victim] stated the two men kicked in the back door to her bedroom and asked for money, jewelry and guns,” according to the probable cause affidavit. “[The victim] stated one of the males began opening drawers in the bedroom and ransacking the closets. She stated the male with the gun asked her if she had ever been pistol whipped and told her he could ‘blow her [expletive deleted] brains out.’ [The victim] stated the males were dressed in black, wearing hoods over their heads and kept their faces covered.”

According to the affidavit, Parker County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the area where they were flagged down by Hassan Ellis in the 2200 block of Ranch House Road. Ellis told deputies that he met two males at a hotel in another city and got into a car with them and Ellis jumped out of the car because the males he was with “did something.”

Baxter and Hudson were identified by Ellis from photographs and told investigators that he was not aware of the two men’s intentions, according to the affidavit.

“On April 16, both Hudson and Baxter were taken into custody in Hays County on warrant(s). Both Hudson and Baxter were interviewed, regarding an aggravated robbery that occurred in Austin in March of 2019,” according to the affidavit. “During the interview, Hudson and Baxter were also asked about the aggravated robbery in Willow Park.”

Hudson told investigators that they were in the wrong home and that they were looking for someone who owed Baxter money, according to the affidavit.

“Both Mr. Hudson and Mr. Baxter are charged with aggravated robbery, which is a first degree felony. If convicted, they are facing a punishment range of 5 to 99 years or life in prison and up to a $10,000 fine,” Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain said. “Both defendants are currently incarcerated in the Hays County Jail in San Marcos where they have local charges. They will need to conclude their cases down there before they are transported to the Parker County Jail to face our charges on these cases. Therefore, all of the court settings int the 415th District Court, where the case was randomly placed, will be subject to rescheduling pending the outcome of the Hays County cases.”

Baxter and Hudson are both being held in the Hays County Jail on a combined bond of $325,000 each for the Willow Park and Austin aggravated robberies.
