Bond set for 18-year-old charged in Feb. 14 Beckendorff Park fight

Posted

An 18-year-old man who was allegedly involved in the Feb. 14 fight at Beckendorff Park remains in the Harris County Jail with bond reduced to $150,000.

Christopher Cavazos’s bond was first set at $250,000 but has now been reduced, according to Harris County District Court documentation. He faces three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Authorities said the fight began as an after-school verbal altercation that escalated when students from another high school arrived and got involved. According to court documentation, at least one knife was introduced into the disturbance.

Two students were taken by Life Flight to the Memorial Hermann Trauma Center. One of those students, Marlon Robinson, 17, died from his injuries Feb. 20.

Another juvenile was treated at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus.

Court documentation said investigating authorities visited Robinson in the hospital before his death. The documentation said authorities showed Robinson a video of the fight. The documentation said Robinson identified himself in the video, and he was fighting Cavazos while Cavazos had a knife in his hand.

Two others, both juveniles, have been charged following the incident. One was charged with murder after Robinson’s death. The other was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The Harris County Sheriff’s office is leading the investigation. Citizens with any details regarding this incident and the charges should contact that office.
