Centralia Police have arrested two Centralia brothers in connection with the jumping of a Bryan Manor employee as he was preparing to get into his car to leave work early Tuesday evening.

Centralia Police say 18-year-old Trent Shafran of North Lakewood Drive and 23-year-old Blake Shafran of North Cherry turned themselves in Wednesday after their father was located and told the two were wanted for aggravated battery.

Police say employees of Bryan Manor and video of the parking lot surveillance helped identify the two as suspects. One of them admitted having a CO2 pistol that reportedly had been pointed at the victim and used to strike him on the head.

The 31-year-old Centralia man, who was the victim, told police he had been having problems with a co-worker, who is the wife of one of the two men, that apparently led to him being jumped as he was looking down at his car keyes to get in his vehicle. The victim reported being punched several times before being struck in the head.

The two men had left the parking lot in a car and the victim was sitting on the curb of the parking lot as Centralia Police arrived on the scene after receiving a call that there was a group of people in the Bryan Manor parking lot with weapons.

The employee was treated at the scene by Centralia Fire and Lifestar Ambulance personnel before being transferred to SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital in Centralia. Police say he was released following treatment.

Police say they were told where the CO2 gun had been hidden and it was recovered.

The incident occurred at seven Tuesday evening.
