A man accused of beating up and robbing NFL player Javon Walker has been arrested, according to the Associated Press.

Arfat Fadel, 30, was arrested last Friday in connection with the June 16 incident, and is suspected of multiple felonies, including kidnapping and robbery, according to Metro Lt. Clinton Nichols.

Police are now looking for a second suspect, who they believe is in Las Vegas.

Police believe Walker, an Oakland Raiders wide receiver, got into a vehicle with Fadel and the other unnamed suspect before he was discovered alone on the Las Vegas Strip, beaten and unconscious.

He was reportedly missing $100,000 worth of jewelry and $3,000 of cash.

Walker was taken to the hospital, where police report he was treated for a concussion and facial injuries.

Metro police have sent out two very different photos of Fadel - one that appears to be from a surveillance camera, looking happy and talking on the phone. The second is a police mugshot, featuring a man far from pleased.
