Bossier City police seek suspect who robbed Bossier Inn & Suites
Bossier City police and Bossier Crime Stoppers are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect who robbed a local motel over the weekend.
Bossier City police responded to a reported robbery just before 3:30 a.m. Sunday at the Bossier Inn and Suites in the 700 block of DiamondJacks Boulevard.
The suspect entered the front door of the lobby, whereupon he jumped over the counter, grabbed the clerk and demanded money from the cash drawer. During the incident, the suspect struck the cashier in the head with an object, possibly a firearm.
The victim told police she did not see the suspect produce a weapon; however, she felt what might have been a firearm concealed on the suspect when he grabbed her. The clerk was treated at the scene by Bossier City Fire Department personnel, but she did not require transport to a hospital.
The suspect got an undisclosed amount of money from the cash drawer before fleeing on foot.
Security cameras recorded images of the suspect, which the victim described as a black male. The suspect was wearing all-black or dark blue clothing with a hat that had a white band. The suspect’s clothing appears to be light blue in color on a portion of the video, apparently due to the lighting in that particular location.
Anyone who has any information about this crime is asked to call Bossier Crime Stoppers at 424- 4100. They can also submit a tip online at bossiercrimestoppers.org. Persons who contact Bossier Crime Stoppers are reminded they can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward.
