Police Search for Armed Robber Near Barksdale
Earlier tonight, an African-Amercan male approach our house on Bistineau Drive. He asked my brother-in-law, who was outside watching the grill, if he could pay $50 for a ride across town. My brother-in-law refused. The man then asked if he could pay $50 to come inside for a few minutes. Not surprisingly, he refused again. Fortunately, the suspicious man walked away.

Less than an hour later, over 9 police units from Bossier and Shreveport police departments, including a K-9 unit, were all over our street and all streets within sight. They confirmed that they were searching for the man who had approached our house only minutes prior. According to police, this man is a suspect in armed robbery.

We don't have any further details, but we assume the robbery took place tonight. We are fortunate nothing more happened on our street.

Oh that is so scary!! I'm glad he didn't use force against y'all! I just saw this story on the news. He robbed I thought they said the Family Dollar Store then left in an SUV...2 women bailed and were arrested but he's still at large.

If my wife and kids weren't home I would have let the guy in and called the cops.

That sounds dangerous. What if the guy had shot you in the head the minute he was inside?

Search for armed robber in Shreveport and Bossier


Police from both sides of the Red River were searching for an armed robber Thursday night. The robbery happened at the Family Dollar store on West 70th in Shreveport. Officers say a masked man armed with a sawed-off shotgun walked in, demanded money, then fled in an SUV. Officers chased the SUV into Bossier. Two women who bailed out of the vehicle were taken into custody. The driver ditched the SUV at an apartment complex on Industrial Drive. Canines from Shreveport and Bossier are on his trail. The man is believed to still be armed with that sawed-off shotgun.
