PRESS RELEASE



Wednesday October 20, 2004


On the morning of Sunday, September 26, 2004, at approximately 2:15am, Deputies of the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a report of a simple robbery that had occurred at the intersection of E. Broussard Road and East Milton. The 17 year-old female victim stated that she was traveling home and observed a vehicle that appeared to be following her. When she stopped at the intersection of E. Broussard Road and East Milton, her vehicle was struck from the rear by this vehicle. She pulled into a nearby parking lot and exited her vehicle to survey the damage. The driver of the other vehicle grabbed her and forced her into her vehicle. The suspect then stole several items from the victim including her car keys, cellular phone and purse.

The suspect is described as a black male approximately 5'7" in height, with a shaved head and a goatee. The only description of the suspect's vehicle is a black automobile with square tail lamps and a white stripe along the side.

Detectives have obtained a composite of the suspect, and are asking for assistance in identifying him. If anyone has information, please call the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office at 232-9211 or Crime Stoppers at 232-Tips.
