JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Four members of the Simon City Royal Gang are sitting in jail tonight.

Eighteen-year-olds Brandon "Bam Bam" Stewart and Phillip Shippee, and 17-year-olds Kristian Trosclair and Tiven Singh, were all arrested and charged with Aggravated Assault and Strong Armed Robbery. All the men are from Ocean Springs, except Shippee who lives in Biloxi.

Investigators said the teens had planned to rob the victim when he arrived at a party. When he showed up, Sheriff Mike Byrd said the men beat him unconscious, robbed him, then urinated on him.

The victim was a 16-year-old from the Ocean Springs area. He was taken to the hospital and treated for a fractured upper and lower jaw.

At the time of their arrests, three of the suspects - Brandon Stewart, Kristian Trosclair, and Phillip Shippee - were out on felony bonds for various burglaries.

All four of the suspects are being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center.
