The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office has made two more arrests in the case of a 17-year-old Destrehan teen who was punched to the ground and suffered skull and facial fractures as a result.

The incident occurred on Sept. 5, and 18-year-old Devin C. Bonnette was arrested three days later and charged with second degree battery for allegedly punching the victim. During the course of the investigation, Bonnette told authorities that two other men, 19-year-old Chase J. Thomson and 18-year-old Zachary S. Wilson, played a role in the crime.

Both were arrested last week and charged with principal to second degree battery.

According to the police report, Bonnette said that Thomson bet him $10 that he would not hit the victim. Both Thomson and Bonnette also told the investigating detective that Wilson allowed Bonnette to use his cell phone to lure the victim to the address where he was assaulted.

Several witnesses told authorities that Wilson knew that Bonnette intended to cause the victim harm when he allowed him to use his phone.
