At about 2:45 p.m. Nov. 9, Shreveport police patrol officers responded to a reported attempted robbery of an individual in the 1300 block of North Market Street.
Upon arrival, patrolmen contacted an adult male victim who said that a suspect known to him accosted him and forcefully attempted to

detectives were able to develop 28-year-old Xavion Bryant of the 1900 block of North Hearne Avenue in Shreveport as a suspect.
They subsequently procured an arrest warrant charging Bryant with one count of attempted simple robbery.
His bond has been set at $200,000. Anyone with any information regarding Bryant’s whereabouts is urged to contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 673-7373 or on their Web site at www.lockem up.org.
