HUNTINGTON — Police on Monday arrested several people who they believe helped hide a suspect accused of severely beating a man in Huntington last week.

Darryl Rahmon Terry, 26, of Huntington, was jailed at 9:15 p.m. Monday. The Huntington Police Department charged him with malicious wounding.

Sandy Childers, 50, of Huntington, Davonta Shunnar Floyd, 24, of Huntington, and Antonio Davon Floyd, of Detroit, also were jailed Monday evening. Huntington Police charged each of them with a count of being an accessory to a felony. Davonta Floyd was also charged with forgery of a public record.

Antonio Floyd’s bond was $25,000, while Davonta Floyd’s bond was $40,000. Other bonds had not been entered into the West Virginia Regional Jail website.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court, a man was assaulted by two individuals, one of whom was later allegedly identified as Terry, on Sept. 16 in the 2400 block of 3rd Avenue and sustained serious injuries.

He was diagnosed and treated for a collapsed lung and required tubes to be inserted into his body to correct his injury. He was hospitalized

for about four days after the attack and is using a breathing machine to assist in his recovery.

On Monday, the victim contacted police at about 3:30 p.m. to report he saw one of the suspects at a home in the same location he was attacked.

Officers arrived and made a perimeter in case the suspect tried to flee, the complaint said. They found a woman on a staircase and asked her about who might be inside the building and where they might have gone. Officers alleged the woman had evasive answers and lied to police.

When asked about her daughter and mother, who police knew lived with her, she said they might be inside an apartment at the location.

Officers knocked on the door for more than 15 minutes, announcing themselves, but no one answered the door. Allegedly concerned for the child since the woman could not say where the child was, officers asked a maintenance employee to open the door. Inside they found Sandy Childers and both Floyds. Terry was also located at the apartment complex.

Officers alleged after he was arrested, Davonta Floyd lied to police about his identity.

The group is housed at Western Regional Jail in Barboursville.
