Pasco County

Deputies have arrested two men that were wanted in connection with the brutal beat down and robbery of a Pasco County teen.

Surveillance video shows four men around the time of the incident on Feb. 20.

Authorities said the men followed 15-year-old Geoffrey Lehman of New Port Richey and attacked him, breaking his jaw and knocking out three of his teeth. 

The men took off with his wallet, identification, Nike backpack and Samsung Galaxy 8, then they jumped into a truck and fled the scene. 

Days later, deputies said they arrested 21-year-old Austin Emanuel and charged him with aggravated battery and robbery. Authorities said they were also looking for his cousins, 24-year-old Justin Schreffler, 19-year-old Khristian Schreffler, 23-year-old Trenton Schreffler.

Justin Schreffler was taken into custody on March 2, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. 

On Saturday, authorities told News Channel 8 both Khristian and Trenton Schreffler were arrested. All four men are facing charges of robbery and aggravated battery.

Their bond was set to $200,000 each for the charges.
