Lafayette man arrested after alleged attempted armed robbery

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man was arrested Saturday after allegedly trying to rob a victim at gunpoint.

28-year-old Michael Elliot was arrested and faces aggravated kidnapping and attempted armed robbery charges after encountering the victim at a Baton Rouge strip club on April 7. That's where EBRSO documents say Elliot offered to drive the victim home.

Instead of driving the victim home, Elliot allegedly drove to a parking lot, and told the victim that he had a gun and demanded the victim withdraw money from his account at an ATM.

Elliot and the victim drove to an ATM, where Elliot allegedly drove away after getting into an argument with the victim.

Elliot was later found and arrested. No bond has been set.
