Police searching for armed robbery suspect
Shreveport police investigators are seeking the identity of a woman captured on surveillance video who is accused of robbing an elderly female last Thursday afternoon, Feb. 27, in south Shreveport.
Just after 4 p.m., Shreveport police were called to the 7000 block of Youree Drive in reference to reports that a 61-year-old woman was maced in the eyes and had her purse stolen by two women who fled the scene of the crime in a silver vehicle with temporary plates.
The elderly woman was not seriously injured.
Following the theft, the pair were spotted in bossier City attempting to use the victim’s stolen credit card at a mall retailer.
During the ordeal, Bossier City police arrested one of the suspects, 18-year-old Alexandria Levy of the 600 block of Seneca Trail in Shreveport. Levy was later booked into the Bossier City Jail.
The second woman, who accompanied Levy, fled from officers on foot and successfully evaded capture.
Evidence and information gathered during the investigation has linked the woman to the crime.
Anyone with any information regarding the identity of the suspect who was captured on video are asked to contact Caddo Crime Stoppers at 673-7373 or online on their Web site at www.lockemup. org.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $300 reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
