Man arrested on robbery, gun, drug charges

The Spokane police gang unit arrested a man wanted on a robbery charge and other felony warrants today.

Antonio E. “J-Rock” Cook, Jr., 29, is accused of punching a woman on Sept. 6 after she fought with him and a friend over sexually suggestive text message the friend had sent her, according to court documents.

The woman’s boyfriend saw the messages, documents say.

Cook allegedly stole a knife from the woman after punching her, leading to a first-degree robbery charge.

He posted $10,000 bail in November, but a warrant was issued this week and police were looking for tips on his location. Cook also had warrants for unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance and bail jumping.

To be filed in the “small world” category, the victim told police she knew Cook because his girlfriend had been a victim with her in shooting earlier in the year.

That’s the shooting from back in June that started across town. One man arrested in the case pleaded guilty to a third-degree assault charge but is back in jail, accused of a stabbing last month. The accused shooter, Timothy Lucious, is in jail awaiting trial. (Read more here.)
