Arrest warrant issued for Oklahoma's Parrish Cobb on aggravated robbery charge
An arrest warrant has been issued for Oklahoma cornerback Parrish Cobb on a charge of aggravated robbery with a possible connection to a string of armed robberies, Cobb's lawyer John Lewis confirmed Tuesday, according to Kristin Hoppa of The Waco Tribune.
Lewis also confirmed that the warrant names Cobb as a suspect in a Jan. 10 armed robbery.
"We are aware that an arrest warrant has been issued and are making arrangements for Mr. Cobb to turn himself in," Lewis told The Tribune-Herald. "We look forward to addressing these allegations at the appropriate time."
There were no injuries reported in the incident in question.
Baylor, Bellmead, and Waco police are investigating whether a string of armed robberies between Jan. 7 and Jan. 10 have any connection. Waco Police Sgt. Patrick Swanton confirmed a warrant for the Waco robbery had also been issued to Cobb.
Cobb was limited to just four games last season due to injuries, and was originally committed to Baylor before requesting his release in the wake of former head coach Art Briles' firing.
