Lafayette Police are looking for a truck that was stolen from a construction site just minutes after the robber tried to carjack a woman on Frem Boustany Drive.

Comeaux High was on lockdown. The suspect is described as a white man.

The attempted car jacking was at about 6:30 a.m., and then the construction truck was stolen from Meadow Farm Road at about 6:50 a.m., police say.

Here's a picture of a similar truck:
