Manhunt ends with one in custody


A manhunt that began at the Bossier Parish/Webster Parish line in northeast Bossier Parish west of Sarepta ended with one man being taken into custody without incident.

Patrick Robinson, 33, of the 400 block of Kilgore Road in Plain Dealing, has been booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility and charged with fugitive warrants out of Webster Parish for home invasion, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of criminal property damage.

Bossier Sheriff’s Office deputies were initially contacted by Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office early Thursday morning to assist on a welfare check at Robinson’s residence in Plain Dealing.  He was not home.  Later that morning, Bossier deputies were again contacted to assist in looking for Robinson after he fled the scene of a traffic stop in Webster Parish where he held a man at knifepoint in the vehicle.  He fled into the wooded area in northern Bossier Parish.

Bossier and Webster deputies determined Robinson was in the woods near Emma Cemetery Road, and they conducted an extensive ground search.  Bossier Sheriff’s Office K-9 team and drone unit were called to the scene, as well as a bloodhound K-9 team from David Wade Correctional Center.  Not long after, Robinson was spotted crossing the road at Emma Cemetery Road and Bodcau Road and taken into custody without incident at 12:51 p.m.

Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton and his deputies had teamed with Bossier Sheriff’s Office deputies with the search for Robinson and quickly brought him into custody.  He was then transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking before being transported to Webster Parish.

“This is the kind of teamwork between law enforcement agencies that the public expects from its public servants,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.  “A suspect is on the loose, and it’s our job as deputies to find him.  Bossier and Webster deputies did an excellent job in working together to bring this man into custody.  It’s a good day for both Sheriff’s Offices…a great day to keep our communities safe.”
