Seth Cunningham, a senior cornerback for the Zips, was arrested by Brunswick, Ohio, police Monday.

According to police report, Cunningham entered the 24-hour store on Pearl Road and waved a 9mm handgun in the air. No one was injured, but he took off with a water pipe worth $447.

Cunningham was arrested later, and reportedly admitted to the robbery. He was taken to the Medina County Jail, where he was released after posting a $30,000 bond.

Greg Bach of the Akron athletics department told Cleveland’s Fox 8 Television News that Cunningham has been suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of the case.

Cunningham, who attended St. Edward High School in Medina, Ohio, played in nine games in 2012. He totaled nine tackles and a pass breakup.

His brother, Benny Cunningham, is a sophomore safety for the Zips.
