COLUMBIA, Mo. - Columbia police arrested Jeremy Nash after he was accused of robbery and armed criminal action.

Police said Harris told the child to go his apartment in the 1000 block of Claudel Lane. 

The child was inside the residence when Harris pointed a gun  at him and Nash pulled his pants to the ground, searched his pockets, ripped off his belt, and took off his shoes, police said. 

Officers said Harris threatened the victim with the gun by pointing it at the child's head.
