Robbery Suspect Shot, Arrested After He Goes To Hospital

Tex Texin /

Police in Louisiana say an armed-robbery suspect was shot in the arm by one of his victims.

A suspect was arrested Saturday. The alleged robbery attempt was last Thursday afternoon in Baton Rouge. The Advocate reports that police say the suspect approached two people in a parking lot and threatened them with a gun. They handed him their cell phones. But, according to the police report, one of the victims pulled out his own gun and fired.

Police said the suspect ran away. Police later found a long trail of blood and a cell phone of one of the victims. 

The suspect was arrested after he went to a hospital.

Twenty-nine-year-old Malcolm Williams of Baton Rouge was being held Sunday on a charge of armed robbery.
