Calling it “a very brazen attack,” King County prosecutors today charged former University of Washington football player Zach Fogerson with first-degree robbery for allegedly robbing an 18-year-old student at gunpoint on campus Monday night.
The female student was robbed while walking across campus around 10:30 p.m. Prosecutors wrote in charging documents that Fogerson “held what appeared to be a gun in the victim’s face and demanded her property.”
The victim’s belongings were later recovered from Fogerson’s car, along with a BB gun, a revolver and a baseball bat, according to a summary of the case.
Fogerson is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Fogerson left the Husky football team in July 2011 after Coach Steve Sarkisian said that he was suffering from continuing issues with a concussion he received that spring. He is the younger brother of another former UW player, Johri Fogerson.
