BR restaurant evacuated for an armed carjacking suspect

Baton Rouge Police officers were asked to help New Orleans Police find a stolen car, allegedly taken during an armed carjacking in New Orleans on Nov. 23rd.

The car was tracked to a restaurant on Corporate Blvd. in Baton Rouge, which is why NOPD asked BRPD for help.

When officers arrived at the restaurant’s parking lot around 8pm on Wednesday, they said they spotted the stolen car with a man next to it. That’s when the man ran into the restaurant’s kitchen.

The man is accused of then going into the main dining area of the restaurant and spotted officers outside. As officers made their way into the restaurant, they asked everyone to leave out not knowing if the man was armed or not.
