BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Police are hoping the public can help them track down a woman suspected of helping four men rob, carjack and kidnap a man.

Greater Baton Rouge Crime Stoppers reported Angelina Hooks, 22, rented a hotel room in Baton Rouge for her and the victim. Detectives said she used her identification to rent the room.

According to investigators, early on Sunday, November 8, she called the victim to meet her down in the parking lot. Detectives said when the victim got down to the parking lot, he was punched in the face, pistol-whipped, robbed and put in the trunk of his own car.

According to reports, the victim was driven away from the hotel. The reports added while on River Road, the car was rear-ended, the trunk popped open and the victim was able to escape. The reports also stated Hooks and the four men then drove off in a white truck.

Hooks is described as 5'4" tall and weighs about 117 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes. There was no information about the other four suspects.

She is wanted by the Baton Rouge Police Department on charges of principal to armed robbery, principal to carjacking, principal to second-degree kidnapping, principal to aggravated battery and principal to battery.

If you can help find Hooks or identify the other suspects, call Crime Stoppers at 344-7867, text CS225 plus your message to CRIMES (274637) or anonymously or go to www.crimestoppersbr.com.
