Armed robbery suspect in custody
(WOUB) - A Columbus man wanted in connection with an armed robbery near Nelsonville last week is in custody in Franklin County.

Franklin County Jail officials say 18-year-old Nicholas Brown was arrested by Columbus police early this morning.

The Athens County Sheriff's office reports that Brown entered a home on Carr Road with a gun December 29th and demanded money from the resident.

According to the sheriff's office, Brown used a 16-year-old who was in the house at the time as a decoy.

The minor was arrested and charged as an accomplice.

Brown is facing aggravated robbery charges in connection to the incident.

He is awaiting a transfer to Athens County for his initial appearance in court Friday.
