LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Las Vegas police say they've made a second
arrest in the robbery and beating of NFL player Javon Walker. Police say 40-year-old Deshawn Thomas was arrested Monday in Las Vegas on kidnapping, robbery and conspiracy charges.
He is accused of beating and robbing the Oakland Raiders wide
receiver June 16, and leaving him unconscious on a side street near
the Las Vegas Strip. Thomas was being held without bail pending an appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court. His arrest comes almost two weeks after 30-year-old Arfat Fadel was arrested on similar charges.
