Lafayette Police need your help finding a robbery suspect. On October 13, around 11:00 pm, police were called to a robbery in the 1000 block of Johnston Street. The victim, a 21 year old male of Lafayette, had just parked his vehicle in a parking lot, when he was approached by two black male suspects. The suspects produced a handgun and ordered the victim back into the vehicle. The suspects then drove the victim's truck to a bank at West University Avenue and Jeanne Street and attempted to withdraw money from the victim's account at the ATM, however they were unsuccessful. The suspects then drove with the victim to the intersection of North St. Antoine and Benoit Falgout where they stole his wallet and cell phone and then released him. The victim was not injured during the incident; his vehicle was later recovered in Debaillion Park.
Detectives are asking anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the suspects to contact the Lafayette Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 232-TIPS.
