Felony Fugitive Caught At Cookeville Bus Station

A felony fugive warrant has been taken out against a Mississippi man, who was arrested at the bus station in Cookeville last week after authorities received a tip that he was wanted in Mississippi. Police say they confirmed that information and arrested 38-year-old Robert Lee Jarvis Jr. on charges of rape and what Mississippi calls assault with intent to ravish. The crime reportedly took place in Pearl River County, Mississippi, which is near the Gulf and on the border with Louisiana. Police say Jarvis is from Lumberton, Mississippi, just north of there. There is no word on why he was in Cookeville when arrested.
