A 14-year old has been arrested and charged with robbery first degree in connection with an armed robbery on the Troy University campus in Troy.

The juvenile petition was submitted by Troy University Police, with the assistance of the Troy Police Department, and the juvenile is currently being held in the city's Juvenile Detention Center at the Troy City Jail. Because of the juvenile status of the suspect, his name is not being released by law enforcement.

"Being able to make an arrest in this case so quickly has required a lot of team work and coordination between Troy Police and University Police, and I greatly appreciate the efforts of Chief Jimmy Ennis and his department," said University Chief John McCall. "It's yet another example of the close working relationship we have in Troy and Pike County to fight crime at all levels."

Early Monday evening, a 20-year old male student was robbed outside Alumni Hall. Two suspects remain at large, and the case remains under investigation by police.
