On May 23rd at approximately 3:12 PM the suspect entered the Family Dollar pointing a handgun at the employee working behind the counter. With the suspect standing on the other side of the counter never going behind it, he tossed the employee a black backpack and demanded that he put the cash from the cash register in the bag. The employee wasn’t able to get the register open at first and that’s when another employee had to come help open the register. Once the register was open, the employee took the cash and place the money in the bag. The suspect then fled the scene on foot running behind the store. A citizen advised that she observed the suspect get into a navy blue colored Chevy Impala.
The suspect is described as a black male 5’9-5’10 in height, weighing 160-170 lbs., wearing all black clothing with a red bandanna around his face, white cloth or shirt around his head and armed with a black semi-automatic handgun.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 or www.lockemup.org. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $500.00 for information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
