Police spokesman Garen Bynum said Nwosu was identified as a suspect in an incident in which a firearm was discharged at a woman in a car who drove past Nwosu who was riding on a scooter. Bynum said that investigation was ongoing, with a warrant for Nwosu obtained.

There was a separate warrant for a robbery of an individual that was reported at 2:15 p.m. July 30 in the 1500 block of North 11th Street where a woman was assaulted and personal property taken from her.

During the arrest, a quantity of marijuana and cocaine were located that police said was packed for selling.

A firearm was also recovered and it was determined that Nwosu had a previous felony conviction.

Nwosu was booked into the McLennan County Jail on charges of aggravated assault, robbery, manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance ( cocaine) over four grams under 200 grams, delivery of marijuana under five pounds and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

Serenity Jamie Nicole Poulson was booked in on the drug and robbery charges.
