Another Shreveport Restaurant and Its Employees Robbed; Three Men Arrested
Another restaurant robbery in Shreveport…this time, at the Outback Steakhouse on Line Avenue. Police say at around 11:40 last night, four employees were leaving work after closing up the business, when they were approached by two masked men armed with handguns. The men forced the employees back inside the restaurant, robbed them of their belongings, took money from the business and left in a blue Dodge pickup, driven by another man. But all three were caught a short time later.
The alleged robbers, Demario Washington and Myles Robinson, and the getaway driver, Halston Smith, were all arrested.
This comes just days after Superior Bar and Grill — also on Line Avenue — and its employees were robbed at gunpoint. No word on whether the two are connected.
(Update by John Lee — detectives believe these three may be responsible for upwards of a dozen armed robberies over the past several weeks in multiple jurisdictions. SPD booking photos below:)
