Lafayette police are investigating armed robberies at two apartment complexes over two days this week that have similarities, including an unidentified assailant who wears a dark hooded sweat shirt.

The robber struck first on Monday at 10:20 p.m. at apartments in the 200 block of Lana Drive, when a man with a gun robbed people who were sitting in a car, Cpl. Paul Mouton said.

On Tuesday at 9:50 p.m. two females outside their Glouchester Road apartment were held up by a man who matched the description in Monday’s robbery. Mouton said the women told the robber they had no money, and he ran away.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lafayette detectives or Crime Stoppers at (337) 232-TIPS (8477)
