Suspect already in prison for burglary facing another armed burglary charge

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A suspect accused of a late 2015 armed robbery is already in custody for another robbery charge.

On October 29, 2015, LSU Police started investigating a robbery on the campus of LSU. Authorities say in an arrest warrant that a victim was robbed while he was in his car in a gravel parking lot at the corner of Alaska and West Chimes Street.

The victim told investigators that he was approached by three suspects on bikes. One of the three tapped on the victim's vehicle window with a handgun, stating "this is a robbery" before a second suspect demanded the victim's cell phone and cash from the victim's wallet.

One of the suspects demanded the victim's cell phone code, and when he said he could not recall that information, he was punched in the face.

LSU Police say they were able to match a description of one of the suspects, Zyon Mouton. Police were able to contact and interview Mouton, who said that he and two other men were riding bikes near the scene of the robbery when Malik Warren, 19, pulled out a gun and robbed the victim.

During the interview, Mouton noted that Warren was already incarcerated in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison for another burglary.

He faces another burglary charge for his alleged role in this incident.
