Police seek attempted-robbery suspect

PRESS RELEASE Shreveport Police Department

Authorities obtained an arrest warrant for a local man accused of attempting to rob another man in north Shreveport last month.

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

remove money and valuables from his person after the victim told the suspect that he did not have any money on him.

The suspect, after being seen by a witness to the attempted robbery, fled the scene and has not been located.

Based on information gathered during their ongoing investigation,

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.

The Louisiana Legislature just completed a “do nothing” session that proved to be a stalemate towards solving the state’s financial crisis. A new regular session has begun with few signs that anything substantive will come about. By law, no new tax matters can be considered in this even numbered year.

Flurry’s second objection to the ordinance is the requirement that permit application for cell towers must be reviewed by the city’s independent expert consultant. The city has been working with a national consultant who has a track record of requiring unreasonable, expensive requirements for cell tower installations.

Every five years, several ad valorem property taxes are placed before the citizens for renewals that provide basic city services and salaries/ benefits for our first responders and other city employees. The last time this occurred was 2013. In 2017 the taxes expired, and we made the decision to only go out for the taxes when necessary, and not before.
