Oklahoma State freshman running back Devon Thomas was arrested on Wednesday on "felony complaints of armed robbery and shooting with intent to kill," a police official told the Tulsa World.

Thomas was arrested along with three other suspects in his hometown of Broken Arrow, Okla., after allegedly robbing a man at gunpoint on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the report:

The victim reported the suspects stole his marijuana, money, shoes and clothing and instructed him to leave because they were going to "bust a cap."

As the victim was leaving in his vehicle, one of the robbers fired at least one round that entered the vehicle's rear windshield and nicked the driver's head rest, according to Thomas' arrest report. The report indicates the bullet narrowly missed the driver.

The victim identified four suspects, telling police he has known them for several years, and said Thomas was the suspect carrying the gun. The four -- Thomas, 18-year-olds Eduard Smith and De'Carrio Taylor, and 17-year-old juveniles, all of Broken Arrow -- were arrested Wednesday at various locations in the city.

As of Friday morning, Thomas remained in Tulsa jail on $125,000 bond and had not been charged. He was also arrested in March on a traffic warrant after failing to appear in court for an expired tag.

A three-star recruit in the class of 2014, according to Rivals.com, Thomas was an early enrollee at Oklahoma State. He set the single-season record at Broken Arrow High by rushing for 1,840 yards as a sophomore.

The Cowboys have not commented on Thomas' arrest, per the report.
