A student at Tennessee State University has been arrested in connection with an on-campus robbery. 

The incident happened back in November, but a suspect has now been taken into custody.

According to an affidavit from Metro Nashville Police, 20-year-old Larry Jones was arrested in the case.

The victim reportedly told police that Jones forced him into his car at gunpoint and demanded money from his wallet.

He allegedly shoved the victim out of the car and warned him not to call for help or he'd be shot.

TSU officers were alerted and were able to identify Jones, who is also a student, from the current university student roster.

After collecting enough evidence, he was arrested and was booked on aggravated robbery.

Jones was held on a $5,000 bond.
