EPD is investigating an armed robbery in the city's Jacobsville neighborhood.
It happened around 2:00 Friday morning. Steven Freels is accused of robbing three people at gunpoint as they gave him a ride to his girlfriends house.
When officers went to that home they found Freels and arrested him.
When they asked him about the gun - Freels said he didn't use a gun - he said he used a black glove.
Officers tell us they found a pistol and three cell phones that were described by the victims inside the house.
