Armed robbery suspect arrested
A Ruston man was arrested after a routine vehicle stop found a warrant saying he allegedly robbed a man with a gun in the victim’s own yard.
Maj. Stephen Williams, spokesman for the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office, said LPSO received a report on Nov. 9 that a man on Works Road had been robbed in his own yard.
Williams said the victim was reportedly standing near a shop in his yard, when a man walked up behind him and pulled a gun. The suspect then demanded money, and reportedly took a cell phone and an unknown amount of cash before driving away.
