Freshman wide receiver charged with robbery

A Murray State football player was charged with first-degree robbery Sunday night after the Murray Police Department received a report of armed robbery at The Chase Apartments in Murray.

Janawski Davis, freshman from Prichard, Ala., was arrested when officers responded to the apartment complex at approximately 11:34 p.m.

Davis, who is a wide receiver for the football team was charged with one count of first-degree robbery and held in the Calloway County Jail overnight before he was bailed out Monday.

He was bailed on a 10 percent of a $20,000 cash bond.

John Brush, media relations assistant for Murray State football, would not comment until Murray State officials have gathered more details.

Murray police officials say the investigation is still ongoing, and information will be unavailable until the case closes.
