Mobile Police have made a second arrest in the case where a woman was robbed at gunpoint in her driveway in June.

Authorities arrested 20-year-old Rhakim Jones on July 3. Today they announced the arrest of 22-year-old Devoris Files.

Officials say on Monday, June 25, 2018 at approximately 9:49 p.m. police responded to the 5400 block of Henning Drive East in reference to a robbery of an individual.

The victim told police while she was parking in her driveway she was approached by an unknown male subject who pointed a long rifle at her and said "give me everything."
