Lafayette Police have arrested one man and are seeking another for allegedly beating up and robbing another man on Friday, August 14 around 9:30 p.m. at the Kleiser Chevron gas station on East Gloria Switch Road.

25-year-old Dustin Frances, of Lafayette, was arrested for second degree robbery on Tuesday. A warrant has been issued for 18-year-old Keri Bruno Jr., of Lafayette. 

According to the victim, as he walked down the street he noticed two men following him so he sat on a bench where he thought he was visible to the cameras at the business. Police reports say the two suspects demanded money from the victim and then punched him repeatedly in the face and body. 

The video shows the two suspects reached into the victim’s pockets and removed his wallet containing more than $500. Mobile users, click here to watch the video.

Detectives are asking anyone with information of Bruno's whereabouts to call Lafayette Police or Crime stoppers at 337-232-8477.
