BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office is looking for a suspect caught on surveillance footage robbing a CVS at knifepoint.

Deputies responded to the CVS at 9326 Burbank at about 6:30 p.m.

An EBRSO spokesperson says a man entered the store, produced a knife, and gave the clerk a note, demanding money. The suspect left the store with an unknown amount of cash in what authorities believe is an older model white Lexus with a sunroof.

Authorities describe the suspect as a white male, standing at about 6-foot-tall, wearing a purple LSU sweatshirt, black pants, and a grey hat.

Anyone with information pertaining to this case is urged to call the EBRSO at 389-5000 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
