HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A 15-year-old boy now in police custody is accused of hitting a woman in the head with a brick and then stealing her car in Fort Bend County.

The victim was selling her vehicle last December and arranged to meet the teen who posed as a potential buyer, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office. Authorities say the two met at the intersection of Beechnut and Clodine Road on December 30, and that's when he grabbed a brick, hit her in the head, and then fled in her vehicle.

The woman was treated and released at the scene.

The teenager charged with aggravated robbery charge. He is now being held at the Fort Bend County Juvenile Detention Center.
