Boone County deputies arrested a Columbia teenager Monday after he was accused of robbing a man of his firearm and threatening him with it.
Knowledge D. Wilson, 17, was being held Monday in the Boone County Jail with bond to be set, the Boone County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release. He was arrested shortly after 8 a.m. on suspicion of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.
The victim told investigators he had agreed to buy a handgun accessory from Wilson and met Wilson near his Bethany Drive residence on Feb. 12, according to the release. The man said Wilson threatened him at gunpoint and stole his gun during the meeting.
