LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Las Vegas police say they've made an arrest in
the robbery and beating case involving NFL player Javon Walker. Lt. Clint Nichols says one man was charged Tuesday with multiple felonies including kidnapping and robbery and police are looking for a second suspect.
He says Walker got into a vehicle with the two men early June 16
before he was found beaten and unconscious on a side street near
the Las Vegas Strip. Walker told police $3,000 in cash and about $100,000 in jewelry were taken. Police say Walker suffered a moderate concussion and significant facial injuries. He was treated at a Las Vegas hospital. He signed a six-year, $55 million deal with the Raiders after being released by the Denver Broncos in February.
