A man charged in an attack on a local minister in July has been arrested.
Cedric Ramon Wilson, 25, was charged with robbery with a firearm and first-degree burglary complaints in connection with a July 31 home-invasion robbery of the Rev. Kenneth Brooks.
Wilson was taken into custody around 7:30 p.m Friday, arrest records show.
Wilson was recently named Tulsa Police Department’s latest “Most Wanted” fugitive.
He was charged in Tulsa County District Court Aug. 6 with armed robbery and first-degree burglary in the attack.
Alleged gunman Rondale Dewayne Boyd, 20; Terell Lajuan Cooper, 27; Joeiune Deonte Nelson, 21; and Markedrik Delmar Wilson, 26, were also named in the case.
They have since been arrested and remain in the Tulsa Jail.
Authorities said a teenage neighbor Brooks knew knocked on his door seeking help the morning of the attack and five men kicked in the door minutes later.
Brooks suffered a gunshot wound to the chest while inside his home in the 2700 block of North Denver Avenue, police said. Brooks, who survived the attack, is the former pastor of City of Refuge International Ministries, 1023 N. Utica Ave., and the current owner of the Hands of Glory restaurant, 2616 N. Cincinnati Ave.
In 2010, Cedric Wilson was charged with armed robbery in one case and shooting with an intent to kill as well as burglary of an automobile in another, court records show.
The robbery case was dismissed after a prosecution witness failed to appear, and the shooting and burglary charges were dismissed pending further investigation.
Two other felony cases filed against Cedric Wilson this year are pending, according to records. He was charged with drug possession with an intent to distribute and traffic violations in March. A case filed July 24 accuses him of drug possession and possession of counterfeit coins with an intent to distribute.
