COLUMBIA — Columbia police arrested a 17-year-old Columbia boy Thursday in connection with an armed robbery at the Aspen Heights student housing complex earlier this week.

Kejuana Marshae Johnson was charged with two felony counts of first-degree robbery, two counts of armed criminal action and one count of misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was arrested after police served a search warrant in the 4400 block of West Bellview Drive and found evidence connected to the Aspen Heights robbery.

Tuesday evening, a man approached a 21-year-old woman in the 3600 block of Aspen Heights Parkway, pointed a gun at her and forced her to return to her residence. The man demanded money from the woman and a second woman, also 21. He fled on foot after receiving an undisclosed amount of money.

The Aspen Heights complex is a few miles south of MU and opened earlier this semester. Since its opening, another armed robbery, shots fired and rape also have been reported in the complex.
