One down and one more to go in the case of two men trying to hold up a Midland man outside of an apartment complex, only to have the victim pull out a gun of his own.

Victor Patton, 20, is charged with aggravated robbery after admitting to police that the gun used in the robbery was his.

Police say Patton was in the backseat of a Honda CRV armed with an AK-47 when pulled up to their victim and demanded he get into the back seat.

But when the victim was handing over his wallet, he pulled out his own handgun in self-defense.

The suspects tried to drive away from the scene after a brief struggle but crashed into a fence and had to run off on foot.

With Patton in jail, Midland Police are still looking for the driver of that Honda CRV.

He's described as a tall, thin, black man.

If you think you know who he is, call Midland Crime Stoppers at (432) 694-TIPS.
