A juvenile has been arrested in relation to the attempted robbery and shooting that injured Washington Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. in August, the Washington D.C. Police Department announced in a press release on Wednesday (November 2).

"On Wednesday, November 2, 2022, pursuant to a DC Superior Court custody order, a 17-year-old juvenile male ( who was 16 at the time of the offense), of Northeast, DC, was arrested and charged with Assault with Intent to Rob while Armed (Gun)," the department announced.

Robinson was shot in the glute and lower leg during the August 28 incident, which took place as he exited the CrabBoss restaurant and walked toward his Dodge Challenger Hellcat while being accompanied by two other men, one of whom fled the scene.

Two suspects pulled out handguns and attempted to rob Robinson before one suspect fired the gun and struck the running back as he attempted to fight back.

The two suspects fled the scene in a vehicle without obtaining any of the items they attempted to steal.

The non-shooting suspect was previously arrested after being caught on a nearby surveillance camera.

Robinson, who was selected by the Commanders at No. 98 overall in the 2022 NFL Draft, missed the first four games of his rookie season after being placed on the injured reserve following the shooting.

The Tuscaloosa native made his NFL debut in Week 5 and has made two starts in four appearances, recording 175 yards and one touchdown on 54 rushing attempts.

Robinson was a two-time College Football National Champion (2017, 2020), playing behind future NFL backs Josh Jacobs and Najee Harris during his first four collegiate seasons at the University of Alabama before taking over as the Crimson Tide's primary back in 2021.

Robinson recorded 1,343 yards and 14 touchdowns on 271 rushing attempts (5.0 yards per carry), as well as 35 receptions for 296 yards and two touchdowns, earning a first-team All-SEC selection and Cotton Bowl Classic MVP award during his final collegiate season.
