COLUMBIA — MU police officers arrested two men Monday at 10:30 p.m. in connection with the Feb. 1 robbery of an MU student.
Shane Calahan, 25, was arrested for first-degree robbery, armed criminal action and forgery, Police Captain Brian Weimer said. Brandt William G. Feutz, 23, was arrested for first-degree robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
The robbery occurred at 2 a.m. near the intersection of Rollins Street and East Campus Drive. A previous Missourian article stated that two armed men emerged from a white, four-door vehicle, put on masks and approached a 21-year-old student. The article stated that the men stole her cell phone, along with a friend's cell phone and wallet that she was carrying.
The robbery suspect used the victim’s stolen credit card in two transactions later that night to buy $84.17 worth of cigarettes and lottery tickets, according to a previous Missourian article.
Weimer said police are still gathering more information, and further details cannot be released because of the ongoing investigation.
