Authorities have arrested a second suspect on charges he robbed a student at gunpoint on the Troy University campus in Troy.

Court records show Troy University Police arrested 21-year-old Christopher Lamar Cook on Tuesday and charged him with felony first-degree robbery.

Cook became the second person charged in the robbery. University officials released information earlier that police had already arrested a 14-year-old boy on a similar armed robbery charge.

Court records show police charged Cook with stealing a Verizon cell phone, a wallet containing a debit card and $30 cash at gunpoint.

According to a university statement, the robbery happened outside the all-male dormitory Alumni Hall around 7:40 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4.

The statement and court records show the 20-year-old male victim was robbed as he walked home to Alumni Hall by three people. Records show police believe a third person was also involved in the robbery. It’s unclear if he has been captured yet.

Records show Cook was taken to the Pike County Jail and held on $60,000 bail.
