A Bowling Green man was arrested Friday by police investigating a residential robbery.

Keivon Randolph, 22, was arrested by the Bowling Green Police Department on charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to an arrest citation, Jacob Cowles was at his residence on Woodford Avenue when he encountered Randolph sitting on his couch and rummaging through a backpack.

Cowles reportedly asked Randolph what he was doing at the residence and why he was going through the backpack, and Randolph said Cowles had it coming to him for saying something about Randolph.

"Cowles stated that Randolph began to punch him three times to the left side of his face," the citation said. "Cowles stated then Randolph began to stuff Cowles' phones into his pockets and walk out of his apartment."

Randolph also left with a backpack and a Bluetooth speaker, the citation said.

Police were given a description of what Randolph was wearing, and an officer spotted a person wearing pants and a hat matching that description walking in the area of West Main Avenue and Clay Street.

Randolph was detained and told police he was nowhere near the location of the robbery. He was wearing a hooded sweatshirt different from what was described by Cowles and was not wearing a backpack, the citation said.

Randolph was placed in Warren County Regional Jail under a $5,000 cash bond.
