— Police arrested Kevaun Roosevelt Turner, 22, of 106 Shaw St., Athens, Friday night and charged him on a warrant for first-degree robbery, according to Athens Police Chief Floyd Johnson.

“On Nov. 29, we received a report of a theft at Bonnie Doone Apartments,” said Johnson. “The victim told officers he was hit in the head with a bottle and $231 in cash, a pair of Oakley sunglasses and a ball cap were taken from him.”

Investigator Jonathan Caldwell investigated the case and obtained a warrant for the arrest of Turner, Johnson said.
