The affidavit also specified that the victim listed those involved in the incident as Hickson, Crisp, Delvon Barnes, Trezon Peoples, Devon Butts, Nakia Robinson, and Devontae Freeman.

Hickson and Crisp were taken into custody following the incident in September.

Wednesday, authorities confirmed two more had been arrested: Barnes and Peoples. They were both charged with aggravated kidnapping.

The victim claimed Crisp stayed at Boyd Hall and Hickson drove him to Centennial Park, where he said he was brutally assaulted by he and multiple others from a second vehicle.

After the alleged assault, they left him at Vanderbilt University Medical Center to be treated for injuries to his face.

The victim said his clothes were inside the Mazda's trunk, and his TSU ID and cell phone were stolen.

When officials searched Hickson's car, they found the victim's clothes, ID, and cell phone.

A search on the weapon also found that it was stolen from Alabama.

There was no word on each defendants’ alleged role in the incident.
