The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office is looking for a woman who they say is connected to an armed robbery that occurred in October of 2015.

EBRSO officials say two suspects allegedly robbed a man of his cell phone and attempted to rob four others in the 8000 block of Governor Drive on October 26, 2015.

An EBRSO news advisory says one of the suspects allegedly hit one of the victims with a gun and fired several shots in the victim's direction.

The suspects fled in a truck that was later found to be stolen. The car was recovered near the scene of the crime shortly after the incident. Authorities say evidence in the truck points to 19-year-old Janel Zachary as one of the suspects.

Anyone with information on this crime, or the whereabouts of the suspect is urged to contact the EBRSO at 225-389-5000, or Crime Stoppers at 225-344-7867.
