BG football player Darius Gilbert was arrested today after he was connected to a robbery that took place Saturday, May 26 and is facing charges, said Sergeant Jason Stanley of the Bowling Green Police Division.

A male victim was assaulted and Gilbert was identified as the individual that took his wallet, which included the victim’s driver’s license, credit card and cash, along with the victim’s watch and cell phone.

Physically, the man suffered a swollen upper lip, and was bleeding, Stanley said.

At the time of the robbery, the victim was unable to identify Gilbert, but later recalled Gilbert as the robber — Gilbert was arrested today after he turned himself in, Stanley said.

The incident occurred May 26 within the 600 block of East Wooster Street at 4 a.m., Stanley said.

Gilbert, 21, is a redshirt sophomore who played defensive tackle for the Falcons.
