Authorities arrested a man and a woman Wednesday afternoon after a three-hour stand-off in the rain at a Baton Rouge apartment.
Keller Anne Duncan, 26, and an unidentified man are accused of robbing a victim in his home at gunpoint in July, an East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office news release says. Detectives went to Duncan’s residence at 686 Monet Drive around 10:30 a.m. and found two people inside, but both refused to come out, the release says.
SWAT responded to the scene, and a search warrant was obtained for the residence. After multiple attempts to contact the suspects, SWAT officers forced their way in at 1:30 p.m. and took both suspects into custody.
The robbery victim told deputies he returned home in the 10000 block of Ansley Drive on July 14 to find Duncan and a man in his bedroom, at which point the unidentified man held a knife to his throat. When the victim struck the man, he dropped his knife and pulled out a pistol, the release says. The victim told deputies the two fled with his wallet and electronics.
Duncan is also suspected in an attempted burglary in the 6000 block of Siegen Lane on July 15 and the burglary of a residence in the 800 block of Versailles Drive on July 27, during which a window was broken and jewelry and a television were stolen, the release says.
Duncan and the man were booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
Duncan was arrested on two counts of simple burglary, two counts of criminal damage to property, a count of aggravated burglary and a count of armed robbery.
The unidentified man was arrested on a count of armed robbery, aggravated burglary and simple burglary. Detectives are working to verify the identity of the unknown man, the release says.
