A former OU football player has been arrested in connection to an overnight armed robbery in Norman.

The Norman Police Department reports that just before midnight officers were called to an armed robbery at an apartment in the 2900 block of Oak Tree Avenue. A victim on scene told police two men entered his apartment and pointed handguns at him and his roommate. The suspects allegedly stole cash and drugs from the home before leaving on foot. The victim stated that one of the suspects was concealing his identity while they were able to identify the other suspect as 19-year-old Parrish Cobb.

Officers reviewed surveillance footage and observed the men arrive at the apartment complex in a white Ford Mustang. An officer was later able to find a white Ford Mustang parked in a complex in the 2700 block of W. Imhoff Road. A vehicle nearby was registered to an individual with the last name of Cobb and officers state they observed the box for a semi-automatic BB gun pistol in the back seat.

At 9 a.m. officers were able to locate Cobb at an apartment in the complex.

Cobb was arrested on complaints of robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and conspiracy to commit a felony. Cobb started two games for the Sooners as a freshman cornerback. He was suspended indefinitely from the team in January after an arrest warrant for aggravated robbery was filed in his hometown of Waco.

Police are still searching for the second suspect.
