TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Tyler police have arrested a man who they think was involved in an early morning robbery on Tuesday near The University of Texas at Tyler campus.

A woman at Village at the U apartments called police around 9:40 a.m. and told them there was an unwanted man in her apartment who would not leave.

"This morning the Tyler Police Department received a phone call in reference to a person that was in an apartment. They didn't’t know who it was and thought it may be the suspect of a robbery that occurred earlier this morning. Officers came to the scene, we were able to make contact with him and he has been arrested," Deputy Doyle Lynch said.

Tyler police and SWAT units went to the apartment complex where they found 19-year-old Jaylon Takory Rutherford of Texarkana. Rutherford was arrested on charges of aggravated robbery, possession of a controlled substance in a drug free zone and possession of marijuana.

Rutherford was taken to the Smith County Jail. His bond has been set at $200,500.

The robbery took place around 2 a.m. at an Exxon in the 4200 block of University Boulevard. The suspect pulled a handgun on the store clerk and demanded money from the cash register.

He then drove off in a white Mercury Marquis. No one was injured during the robbery.
