Detectives investigating armed robbery

On Saturday, June 27, 2015 just prior to 5:30 am, the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office received a report of an armed robbery that occurred at a residence in the 1400 block of South Road in Bayou Vista. During the course of the investigation, deputies learned that a female victim was exiting the residence when a male suspect pushed the door and entered. The suspect produced a handgun and demanded money from the victim.

The suspect stole a black purse containing the victim’s identification information and just over $100 in cash. The suspect is described as a heavy set dark skinned male wearing dark colored clothing: a hooded shirt, shorts, and head covering (possibly a ski mask). Another subject, also described as a dark skinned male was seen in the area with the suspect. Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect, second subject, or information on the crime may contact the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office at 985-384-1622, 337-828-1960, or
