ABILENE, TX – Abilene Police Department SWAT Team arrested 20 year old Kanyoni Sedekiya of Abilene after binding up and robbing his roommate. On Friday, August 4, 2017, just before 4 a.m. police were called to a robbery in progress at an apartment complex in the 1200 block of Yeomans Road. An apartment renter says a roommate had come to the apartment in the early hours and after a verbal argument, Sedekayi pulled a handgun demanding money from him. Sedekayi then bound the man with tape and fell asleep inside the apartment.

The victim escaped the apartment while the suspect was asleep and called police from a neighbor’s apartment. Officers secured the area and the SWAT Team personnel arrived and were eventually able to negotiate the suspects surrender without further incident. Kanyoni Sedekiya was arrested and charged with First Degree Felony Aggravated Robbery and transported to the Taylor County Jail. His bond is set at $60,000.
