Red Sox prospect Cody Kukuk arrested over robbery
A player in the Boston Red Sox's minor league system has been arrested for a Nov. 8 robbery that took place in Kansas, according to a report from the Lawrence Journal-World.
A Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman said pitcher Cody Kukuk and another man were arrested on outstanding warrants. Two other men face charges over the incident, the report says.
From the report:
Police alleged that the men entered the Arkansas Street apartment with handguns, battered residents and took their belongings, McKinley said last week.
Court documents allege that cash, two cellphones, an Xbox 360 and the contents of a safe were taken during the incident.
According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Kukuk and the other man are jailed in Long Beach with no bail. The spokeswoman said they will make their first appearance in court in California on Thursday and face extradition.
In 25 games with the Salem Red Sox and Greenville Drive last season, he posted a 4.47 ERA with 116 strikeouts and 83 walks.
