— A 46-year-old Meridian man was arrested Friday night in connection with a robbery that left a man severely injured.

Duane W. Roche in the Ada County Jail on felony charges of robbery, aggravated battery (causing great bodily harm), and possession of a controlled substance.

The robbery occurred in the 10000 block of W. Claudia Road. Police said Roche hit the man who lives there hard enough that he suffered severe head trauma. The victim told police that Roche also choked him to the point where he almost lost consciousness.

A woman who police said was with Roche at the time of the robbery had been located, but she was not charged in connection with the robbery as of late Friday.

Police were still searching for a man who was also with Roche.
