Two Loudon men reportedly turned themselves in Thursday in connection with a Nov. 28 assault at Law's Brickmill Market that sent a 19-year-old Madisonville man to the hospital.

Christopher Duane Baker, 22, Loudon, and Justin Ray Baker, 24, Loudon, surrendered to police Thursday, according to information from the Blount County Sheriff's Office.

According to the Sheriff's Office report from the time, the victim, 19-year-old Jacob Ryan Browning, Madisonville, told deputies that he was waiting in the parking lot of Law's Brickmill Market, 103 Brickmill Road, Greenback, at about 1:30 p.m. when two men and a woman in a black Acura drove up. 
"... The two white males knocked (Browning) down and began assaulting him by kicking, punching and kneeing him in the face and head," the report said.

Deputies reported "obvious bruising and trauma" to the man's face and head.

Browning was taken by Rural/Metro Ambulance Service to Blount Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.

Christopher and Justin Baker were both charged with aggravated assault. Both were free on $25,000 bonds pending 1:30 p.m. Jan. 25 hearings in Blount County General Sessions Court.
