By Janice Gregorson

Bail has been set at $50,000 for a 21-year-old Rochester man accused of beating two women outside a northwest residence early Monday morning, leaving one unconscious.

Letrell Pierre Brewer, 2106 Valleyhigh Drive No. A-206, is charged with two counts of third-degree assault resulting in substantial bodily harm and two counts of making terroristic threats, all felonies.


He was arraigned before Judge Jodi Williamson Friday, who set the unconditional bail at $50,000 or conditional bail at $25,000. Among conditions imposed are to have no contact with the women, both of whom were in the courtroom Friday wearing neck braces.

The criminal complaint said the two women had pulled into the driveway of their residence about 2:50 a.m. Monday and were talking when Brewer pulled up behind them. They told police he got out and pulled open the door on the driver's side and dragged one of the women out and kicked and punched her repeatedly and threatened to kill her. . He then went to the passenger side, pulled the other woman out by her hair and kicked her in the face and head.

According to the criminal complaint neighbors called police after witnessing the assault.

A woman said she was sleeping and heard yelling outside, opened the blinds in her living room and saw Brewer standing over a woman on the ground. She said he then started hitting the second woman. She said she yelled out asking "what was going on" and said he yelled back that he would kill her. She then called 911.

Another neighbor was in his living room and heard the commotion and said he saw Brewer assault the two women before getting back into the passenger side of his vehicle and leaving.

The victims told police that earlier in the evening, they had been at Bon's Buffet and got into a fight with a woman. The complaint said Brewer is believed to live with that woman.

The complaint also said that one or both of the victims may have been or is romantically involved with Brewer.

When police arrived, they found the two women on the ground, one was unconscious and the other was bleeding.


One had cuts on her face, bruises and was missing a tooth. The other complained of pain in her ribs and stomach, the complaint said. Officers said both women appeared to have ligament damage to their neck vertebrae when they were interviewed at the hospital.

Brewer returns to court Oct. 14.
