Armed robbery suspect sought
Ruston police are searching for an armed robbery suspect following an early-morning incident at the Hampton Inn on Friday.
RPD Capt. Tim Parker said that at approximately 3 a.m. Friday, a Caucasian male in his early 20s, standing approximately 5-foot, 9-inches in height, wearing a hoodie and allegedly brandishing a handgun, jumped over the counter in the hotel lobby, forced a clerk to a back room and stole an undetermined amount of cash.
“All the clerk could really tell is that he had dark facial hair,” Parker said.
