Suspects arrested in connection with Scheumann Stadium armed robbery

Ball State University Police arrested Camron Charles Taylor, 21, on Tuesday on charges of armed robbery in connection with the Oct. 12 crime near Scheumann Stadium.

During the crime, two Ball State students were robbed at gun point in the overflow lot on the west side of Tillotson Avenue near the stadium on the morning of Oct 12. One student was robbed of her purse, but neither student was injured, according to a campus-wide Public Safety notice e-mailed to students that same day.

"[The arrest] was just some good, old fashioned police work," said Gene Burton, director of Public Safety.

Burton said UPD got a couple leads and used that information, with the help of the Muncie Police Department, to identify Taylor from surveillance photographs.

Joshua A. Broxson, 25, was also arrested in connection with the Oct. 12 robbery, and a third person "has been named and is being sought for questioning," Public Safety said in a statement. Both Taylor and Broxson reside at 404 S. Celia Street in Muncie.

Burton said UPD is still investigating the Oct. 16 attempted assault on a student near Woodworth and DeHority halls.
