Fugitive squad arrests man who allegedly robbed couple

COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) - A Columbus man arrested on outstanding warrants of burglary and armed robbery was arrested this week by a fugitive squad.

Last Friday around 11:30 p.m., a husband and wife, 72 and 68 years old, were in bed when they heard a knock at their door.

When the husband got up to answer the door, a man with a handgun punched the husband to the ground and made his way into the home.

The suspect also pushed the wife onto the bed and got away with money and other items.   

There were no injuries reported.

However, the couple recognized the intruder from their neighborhood.

A patrol officer followed up and found the suspect's relatives who identified the suspect as Cameron Bowen.

Monday, a fugitive squad arrested Bowen at a relative's home. Bowen has been charged with 2 counts of armed robbery and burglary.  He is scheduled to be in court July 21.

No bond has been issued.
