A former West Virginia University football player and two other men were arrested Thursday for their involvement in a Tuesday night armed robbery in Morgantown.
D’Vante Henry, 22, of Oklahoma City, was arrested Wednesday night on Brockway Avenue after the incident, said Morgantown Police. Henry was a former linebacker for the Mountaineers until he was arrested for sexual assault in September 2013 and subsequently kicked off the team.
Matthew Farmer, 24, and Adrian Morris, 23, were arrested early Thursday for their involvement in the robbery with Henry.
According to the victim of the robbery, Henry, Farmer and Morris broke into her residence, waved a handgun, punched her in the face and choked her during the robbery. Three additional people were in the apartment but were not attacked during the incident, police said.
A cell phone and prescription medications were stolen during the robbery, the victim told police.
All three men are each charged with one count of first degree robbery and one count of conspiracy.
Henry is currently in the North Central Regional Jail in lieu of $60,000 bail. Farmer and Morris were still waiting to be arraigned.
