Solomon Wright

Police Tuesday arrested a Baton Rouge man who in late February allegedly enlisted the help of the mother of his children to rob the woman’s ex-boyfriend, according to a Baton Rouge police report.

The victim told police his ex-girlfriend had asked him to meet her at 2722 Brownlee St., shortly before 1:30 p.m. Feb. 27 to talk, the report says.

While the two were talking inside his vehicle, the victim noticed that his ex-girlfriend was sending text messages to someone else, according to the report. Moments later, 25-year-old Solomon Wright approached the driver’s side door and pulled out a handgun, the report says.

As Wright said “give me everything you got,” the victim’s ex-girlfriend got out of the vehicle and ran away, the victim told detectives.

The victim handed over to Wright $150, his wallet, keys and a pair of size 14 black and white Michael Jordan tennis shoes, and then Wright ran away, the report says.

The victim told police he believed Wright and his ex-girlfriend, who have two children together, set him up, according to the report. He said while he had not met Wright, he had heard Wright had a history of robbing people, the report says.

Detectives showed the victim a six-person photographic lineup, according to the report, and he identified Wright as the man who robbed him at gunpoint.

Wright, 4949 Hooper Road, was booked into Parish Prison on a count of armed robbery.
