Suspect arrested following armed robbery
Shreveport Police have arrested a man suspected of robbing four individuals in eastern Shreveport early Sunday morning.
Just after 3:15 a.m. on November 10, 2013, Shreveport Police were called to the 1700 block of Gilbert Drive relative to a reported armed robbery. Upon the arrival of officers, information was received that four men, while standing outside their vehicle, were approached by a purple colored Chevrolet sedan occupied by three unknown men, one of which was reportedly armed with a handgun. The armed man, upon exiting the vehicle, demanded money and other personal belongings from the victims. Upon obtaining cash along with other valuables, the armed robber and two other men accompanying him, all fled the scene in the sedan. No persons were injured during the ordeal.
Shreveport Police, during the course of an investigation launched into the incident, were able to gather information that led authorities to a home located in the 200 block of Herndon Street. On officers arrival at the Herndon Street home, a vehicle closely matching the description of the one used during the robbery was located on the premises along with several subjects inside the residence. Further investigation linked 29 year old Demond Robinson of Shreveport to the crime. Robinson was taken into custody at the residence and subsequently booked into the Shreveport City Jail where he now faces four counts of armed robbery. No other arrests have been made at this time; however the investigation into the robbery remains underway.
