A young Zachary woman was arrested Saturday after an incident late Friday in which six people were shuffled into a Burbank Drive apartment bathroom and held at gunpoint while the residence was searched for valuables.
One victim told East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies that the people who live at the apartment in the 4600 block of Burbank Drive had friends over Friday evening to hang out, according to a report on the incident. The victim told deputies that a friend invited a man and woman to join them that evening.
The man, who the victims knew as “Fred” and the woman, later identified as Kaylee Wilson, 18, left the apartment at one point and later returned, the victims told deputies. Wilson told the victims she had misplaced her ring and wanted to come back inside to look for it, according to the report.
The male victim who held the lease to the apartment let the couple back inside and went into the bathroom to change clothes to go out for the night. When he came back out, he found the man holding a revolver, the report says.
“Fred” ordered all five people at the apartment at the time to get into the bathroom and empty their pockets while Wilson rummaged through the residence for the next 10 minutes.
During the holdup another victim came inside the apartment, returning from the store, and was ordered to join the others in the bathroom and empty his pockets, as well, the report says.
Before the couple left with at least $1,150 and a watch, they told the six victims to wait at least 10 minutes before leaving the bathroom.
Detectives interviewed the victims and later learned Wilson worked at a Zachary pizza restaurant. Detectives interviewed the restaurant owner who said both of the alleged robbers, Wilson and Fred Gray, worked there, the report says.
Detectives arrested Wilson at her house, where she said she had returned to the apartment that night to look for a ring but that her boyfriend, Gray, had decided to pull a gun on the victims.
Wilson, 6515 Rollins Road, Zachary, was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on counts of false imprisonment with a dangerous weapon and armed robbery. Information was not immediately available about whether Gray had been arrested or was being sought.
