Anonymous tip leads police to attempted armed robbery suspect

THIBODAUX, LA (WAFB) - Police said an anonymous tip led them to a man wanted for attempted armed robbery.

The Thibodaux Police Department reported Deangelo Coleman, 23, was arrested Monday.

Investigators said a tip to Crime Stoppers claimed Coleman was possibly hiding in a trailer park outside Thibodaux and that's where he was found.

According to reports, Coleman was in the passenger seat of a black Chevrolet Camaro that pulled up behind a vehicle with a woman sitting inside on the morning of Sunday, November 26.

Officials said Coleman got out of the car, pulled out two guns, and told the woman to give him everything she had. They added the woman told Coleman she didn't have anything, so he reportedly got into her car and told her to drive to her home.

Authorities reported Coleman told the victim she was driving too slowly and that "she was lucky because he was going to let her live today." They added Coleman then got out of the car and ran off.

TPD said Coleman's bond on the attempted armed robbery is $250,000. They added he is also being held on charges pending from the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office.
