Oklahoma State freshman running back Devon Thomas was charged with three felonies in relation to an armed robbery that took place last week,  according to the Tulsa World's Kelly Hines.

Thomas faces charges of shooting with intent to kill, robbery with a firearm and first-degree burglary.

Thomas was arrested last week with three other suspects in his hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, after authorities say he robbed a man at gunpoint. He has denied the allegations and was released on $190,000 bond Sunday. ranked Thomas as three-star recruit in the class of 2014, and he enrolled early at Oklahoma State in January. Thomas set the single-season record at Broken Arrow High School with 1,840 rushing yards as a sophomore.

More from the Tulsa World:

The victim told police the intruders robbed him at gunpoint, taking his marijuana, money, shoes and clothing and instructing him to leave because they were going to “bust a cap.” After the victim got into his vehicle, one of the robbers fired at least one round that went through the rear windshield and nicked the driver’s head rest, narrowly missing the driver, according to Thomas’ arrest report.
