The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office arrested a man in connection with a robbery early Saturday morning.

Police say Mario Cason, 24 (pictured below)  was caught a few blocks away from Talking Tree Drive, where the robbery occurred. (Mug shot from previous arrest)

Initially the homicide unit responded because a 911 call said there was gunshots and a small amount of blood on the scene.  Investigators said there never were gunshots and the sound a witness heard was likely tires popping when Cason left the scene.

Police say the victim and accused robber both suffered minor injuries.
