A Fort Hood soldier is behind bars after police said he robbed a man at gunpoint in a San Marcos apartment last month.

San Marcos police arrested Spc. Taylor Jacob Dunn at Fort Hood on Wednesday, and arraigned him in a Killeen district courtroom the same day on a charge of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony.

A spokesman for the Army’s Human Resources Command confirmed Dunn is an active-duty specialist who enlisted in February 2011.

He is assigned to Fort Hood’s 3rd Squadron, 3rd Cavalry Regiment, according to the Army.

According to an arrest affidavit, Dunn and another man, Edward Nagy, robbed a San Marcos man at gunpoint in his apartment Nov. 28.

According to the affidavit, the victim was smoking marijuana with Nagy and Dunn when the two men pulled out guns, pointed them at him, and proceeded to rob him.

The two stole a cellphone, money, about 5 ounces of marijuana and a 9 mm handgun, the affidavit stated.

Dunn is currently in Hays County Jail, and his bail is set at $250,000.
