Cookeville Woman Reports Being Robbed

A Cookeville man will be back in court tomorrow on charges of robbery. Police say 28-year-old Wilmoth Earl Denson of East Spring Street is accused of taking a cell phone and $70 in cash from a woman who he apparently believed owed him money. The victim says that she was walking along West Broad Street, near West End, when a car pulled up and Denson got out, knocking her to the ground and taking her money. She told police that she and her boyfriend later went to Denson's home to retrieve the items, but he refused to give them back. When police arrived to question Denson, he denied having seen the woman, but was arrested and taken to jail. Police also charged him with possession of drug paraphernalia after he allegedly took a syringe out of his boot while being booked in.
