Police arrested a 17-year-old Ellison High School student who is accused of robbing a fellow student at the campus.

Police charged Jah-Quan Damaine Nesbitt with robbery. Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Nesbitt on Friday, setting his bail at $100,000.

Investigators with the Killeen Independent School District’s police department believe Nesbitt threatened to kill a student in a high school bathroom on Feb. 15 while robbing him.

According to an arrest affidavit, Nesbitt approached a student in the bathroom and asked him for money. The student told Nesbitt he did not have any money. Nesbitt put the student in a “choke hold” and threatened to kill the student. Nesbitt then took the student’s cellphone.

Cooke also arraigned Angel Arturo Moreno, 24, on a charge of attempted arson. Moreno’s bail was set at $50,000.

Coryell County Justice of the Peace Bill Price arraigned Michael Thomas Cook, 23, of Copperas Cove, on Thursday on a charge of abandoning or endangering a child. Price set his bond at $5,000.
