Scott told officers that he and the two men went to the truck where he had let the man sleep in, pulled him out. Scott told police that he and another man beat the victim with their fists while the third man used a pair of brass knuckles to beat the victim.

Scott told police he and the two men then forced the victim back into the truck and they drove to the house of the victim's relative where they took a television and an airsoft pistol and drove away.

Scott was arrested at 2 a.m. Friday on preliminary charges of robbery, burglary, intimidation and kidnapping. His bond was set at $10,500.

Police are still searching for two other suspects - a 23-year-old white man and a 27-year-old black man.
