A man was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony, in McLennan County on Tuesday.

According to the affidavit, the victim was met by two black males in a four-door sedan at Murphy’s USA gas station on April 5 in Bellmead. A video showed the male passenger get out of the car and meet with the victim, he then re-entered the car with the victim’s phone. Neither male exchanged money.

The driver, Cory Robinson, began driving away with the victim’s phone in their possession. The victim still had his upper body partially through the window when Robinson fled the scene. He did not make any attempt to stop the vehicle to return the phone or let the victim exit the vehicle.

As a result, the victim received injuries while Robinson used a deadly weapon, the vehicle, according to the affidavit.

DPS troopers located the vehicle later that night. The vehicle crashed, and Robinson took off on foot. The passengers told troopers the driver was their brother. Through further investigation, the address of Robinson was one block away from the crash.

A photo line-up was conducted, and the victim was unsure of the two individuals pictured. One of which was Robinson.

Four hours after the aggravated robbery, a post was made by Robinson stating, “He messed up his whole life within a couple of minutes.”

Robinson was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery Tuesday and was booked at McLennan County Jail. His bond for the charge is set at $25,000.
