A possible robbery in Murray, Kentucky, lead to the Saturday arrest of a Pulaski man.

Reportedly, 19-year-old Mareio McGraw has been dismissed from his position as running back for Murray State.

The Murray State athletic department is reportedly monitoring the situation along with area law enforcement.

The Murray Police Department was made aware of a possible robbery that occurred Friday evening August 25th. Murray Police Department Investigators spoke with each of the victims and were able to identify and locate McGraw. 

A warrant of arrest was issued and signed by Calloway County District Judge Hutchens for three counts of robbery in the first degree, a class B felony. McGraw was taken into custody with no incident and was transported to the Calloway County Jail.

In a statement, Murray State Director of Athletics Allen Ward said:

"Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and the legal process will take its course as it relates to this alleged incident," Ward said. "However, based on the information we have been provided, we believe the matter warrants dismissing Mareio from the team for violating both department policy and team rules."
