BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Two suspects are in custody thanks to a quick thinking victim who wrote down
the suspect's license plate number and K-9 officers who caught them when they
tried to run.
Police say two males armed with handguns robbed a victim of his property in
the 400 block of East Boyd and fled in a white car around 11:42 p.m. Tuesday.
Around 1:15 a.m. Wednesday, another victim was robbed by two suspects matching
the same description in the 5100 block of Highland Road.
The second victims managed to get the license plate number off the suspect's
vehicle as it fled. Within just a few minutes, a Baton Rouge Police K-9 officer
spotted the suspect car traveling north on I-110.
When he tried to stop the vehicle, the suspects fled and officers from
several districts assisted as K-9 chased the suspect for about 15 minutes
through north Baton Rouge. The suspects abandoned their car in the 3600 block
of Lone Oak and tried to escape on foot.
K-9's Omega and Atlas quickly caught both of them. They have been identified
as Deshawn Lollis, 18, and Rodney Washington, 25, both of Baton Rouge.
After being treated at Earl K. Long for dog bites, both suspects were booked
into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and were charged with armed robbery,
aggravated flight from an officer and resisting an officer.
