Man indicted in knife threat

A Bryan man accused of pointing a knife at an acquaintance while threatening to cut his heart out was among those indicted this week by a Brazos County grand jury.
Kelvin Wayne Blue, 29, was arrested in September after his cousin, Carol Brown, and her boyfriend suspected the defendant of stealing money from their car, authorities said. The two caught up to Blue and he agreed to be searched, court documents state, but he got nervous when Brown noticed a bulge in his sock.
He then pulled out a knife and pointed it at the boyfriend, who was sitting inside a nearby car, while egging the boyfriend on to “come outside and be a man,” documents state.
Blue fled when he noticed Brown calling the police from a pay phone, Brown told investigators.
Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Blue was among 35 people indicted by the grand jury Thursday for felony crimes. An indictment is not a finding of guilt. Rather, it indicates that a grand jury believes enough evidence exists to warrant a trial.
Also indicted for a second-degree felony Thursday was College Station resident Darron Dion Myles, who was arrested for burglary of a habitation in June after police said he kicked in the door to his girlfriend’s home and beat her with his fists and a telephone.
Myles also was indicted for assault causing bodily injury, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
Another College Station resident could face up to 10 years in prison after being indicted last week for injury to a child.
According to court documents, the 39-year-old’s stepson was found by authorities last month carrying a broken cutting board that he said was used by his stepfather to hit him. The wooden board broke as it was being used on the boy, he said.
The boy, now 13, was taken to College Station Medical Center, where doctors noted his extremely red and bruised buttocks. According to the child, he was punished with the paddle twice after spilling a bottle of water, authorities said.
The man said he did spank the child with the paddle several times a month, but this time was because the boy was caught trying to melt lead with a lighter in his room, court documents state. The paddle did break while administering the punishment, he told police.
It is the policy of The Eagle to not print the name of a person accused of a crime if it identifies a potential abuse victim who is a juvenile.
