An investigation by the Bossier City Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit into an armed robbery that occurred last month has resulted in the arrests of three people.
Mekayla C. Brown, 21, Brittany Gay, 18, and Jaschumbia Wilson, 17, all from Haughton have been arrested for robbing a man and woman on November 26, 2014 in the parking lot of the Crossland Hotel in the 3000 block of East Texas Street.
During the incident Brown threatened the victims with a knife. She also reportedly struck the man in the leg and the woman in the arm with a crowbar resulting in minor injuries. After getting the woman’s wallet, the three suspects fled the scene in a pickup truck. Police learned that Gay was an acquaintance of the victims and had arranged to meet them at the hotel to smoke some marijuana.
Over the course of the ensuing investigation, detectives obtained information that linked the suspects to the crime which subsequently lead to their arrests on charges of armed robbery.
