Manhunt underway for armed suspect who ran from police

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Baton Rouge Police Officers were called to the 12000 block of Shay Avenue Wednesday afternoon for people parking in a man's lawn.

When the officers responded, they found three men standing near a vehicle with a Mississippi license plate.

Officers stated one of the males was acting suspicious, so the officer patted the man down. The officer felt what he believed to be a weapon in his pocket. At that point, the suspect allegedly pushed the officer and fled the scene.

Police say they searched the area for more than an hour, but were unable to find the man.

They are working to determine the man's identity. 

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 225-344-7867. Remember you can remain anonymous.
