Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: (KYTX) - The third suspect wanted by Tyler Police on an aggravated robbery warrant has turned himself in.

According to Tyler Police, Kevin Nelson turned himself into authorities on the Aggravated Robbery warrants.


Another man is in jail this morning following three robberies in Tyler last month. According to jail records, 20 year old Danzel Warren was arrested Wednesday. Tyler police say he was an accomplice in the robberies. Police are still looking for 19 year old Kevin Nelson.

TYLER (KYTX) - Police have arrested one of three men they believe responsible for three aggravated robberies last month in Tyler. The three robberies happened late at night on June 22. Pregnant mother Ashia Cane remembers it clearly. That's the day three men barged into her home on Jackson street in Tyler and threatened her life, and her one-year-old daughter's life.

"He turns back around and points the gun at me and my baby and they just take our phones and leaves," Caine recalls.

The memory of a gun pointed at little Tashyia's head still haunts her, even more so now that she knows two of the accused robbers live in the same city she does.

"It's scary that they live in Tyler," she says.

The two suspects who live in Tyler are 19-year-old Kevin Nelson, and 20-year-old Danzel Warren. They're both still on the run, with warrants out for four counts of aggravated robbery, for the four people held at gunpoint.

Kevin's cousin, 23-year-old Christopher Nelson, was arrested Wednesday afternoon in Longview, on four counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated assault, for allegedly pistol whipping a man outside his house on Mustang Trail in Tyler.

"It makes me feel a whole lot better that they're still working on this," Caine says.

Caine is hoping the public will help police find Kevin Nelson and Danzel Warren before anyone else's lives are threatened.

"I would be very thankful if they do, if they know anything or know who they are, I'd be very happy if they tell if they know where they're at," Caine says.

She says she won't consider her family safe until all three men are behind bars.
