Police Looking for Man in Connection with 2 Holdups
Shreveport Police are on the hunt for a man suspected in a pair of armed robberies at local businesses.
Just after 9:00 p.m. on Monday night, officers were called to the Shell gas station in the 3300 block of Hearne Avenue. The business was robbed by a lone gunman. The clerk was able to flee to safety but not before the thief took money from the register. The robber had on dark clothing and white latex gloves. He also had something covering his face.
Just a few hours after the first robbery, a man matching the same description held up the Circle K in the 9400 block of Mansfield Road. During this robbery, the suspect pulled a gun on the clerk and demanded cash. The suspect ran from the business after the holdup.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373 or visit their website at www.lockemup.org
