On Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 4:11 a.m., Beaumont Police responded to a call from a victim who wanted to report an assault that had occurred at the Americas Best Value Inn located at 1155 IH-10 N. During the investigation, the Officer learned that the victim had used a website to locate a prostitute. The victim went to the Americas Best Value Inn on the night of Friday, January 17 to meet with the prostitute. Once inside the hotel room he was confronted by two males and two females. Over the course of several hours, the victim was bound, physically and sexually assaulted, robbed, and threatened with death by the four suspects. Eventually, the suspects made the victim get into his own vehicle with them and dropped him off in a park in the 3900 block of Delaware around 4:00 a.m. on January 18. The suspects then fled with the victim’s vehicle.
BPD Detectives began investigating the case and were able to locate the victim’s stolen vehicle on Tuesday, January 21 at the Executive Inn & Suites located at 4085 IH-10. An operation was conducted which led to the apprehension and arrests of Hannah Bryan (18 year old Lumberton resident, pictured below with hair up), Dylan Beaumont (25 year old Lumberton resident, pictured below with beard), and Lauren Redman (28 year old Beaumont resident, pictured below with hair down). All three suspects were interviewed by detectives then booked in to the Jefferson County Jail on charges of Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Kidnapping and Aggravated Sexual Assault. The fourth suspect has been identified as Joshua Allen Sees (a 22 year old transient, pictured below in plaid shirt with many tattoos on arms/hands). Sees is still at-large and has outstanding warrants for the same three charges.
