HARRIS COUNTY, TX (KTRK) --A teen who officers say attempted to run over two teens in north Harris County went before a judge earlier this morning.
Darrell McCain, 17, is facing the rare charge of retaliation, plus two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Investigators say it was around 3:30pm Thursday when Chelsea Grimble, 18, was walking home with an 18-year-old man on Foxwalk Lane and Foxwood in Humble. That is when they say McCain attempted to slam his vehicle into the two victims.
Melody Grimble, the female victim's mother, says she watched as the male victim pushed her daughter out of the way, before trying to grab a brick to throw at the driver.

All three people involved in this case are students at Nimitz High School.
ABC13 received an image from the male victim, showing his hands which were badly bruised and beaten during the alleged assault.
Officers arrested McCain at his home.
Investigators say they believe McCain was retaliating after he was among three people charged with burglarizing the male victim's home in October 2015.
Court records show McCain is accused of stealing $3,000 worth of computers and electronics, and that McCain left his cell phone at the scene of the alleged crime.
