Watch attempted robbery, police need your help

Posted: Updated:

Shreveport Police have released the surveillance video from the National Liquor Bank attempted robbery on June 28th. Detectives say the suspect, a young black male, attempted to rob the liquor store on West 70th Street and Union Avenue after a minor dispute. He became confrontational when the store's owner refused him a discount on cigars.

"From the appearances, it looks like the man began to get frustrated and aggravated as the owner told him to leave," SPD's Cpl. Marcus Hines said. The suspect then left, with a threat.

"Now, there was a statement made allegedly by the suspect, 'I'm going to give you a reason to call the police,'" Hines said.

The suspect did just that. He returned and tried to runoff with the cash register. Hines says the attempt was unsuccessful because the register was tied down to the counter. The suspect did make off with the owner's Iphone. Hines says he is probably local to the West 70th area and frequented the shop.

"We're still looking for this individual," Hines said. "We hope that someone sees the video and give us a call and give Crime Stoppers a call."

Hines says there's a $400 reward for useful information. The number to Crime Stoppers is 318-673-7373. Police say they're looking for a black male probably in his late teens or early twenties, slender build and about five foot nine inches tall. Follow this link the surveillance footage.
