A teenager wanted in the armed robbery of a pizza delivery worker earlier this month was arrested Thursday night.
Kendell Allen, 17, was taken into custody hours after Baton Rouge police named him and an accomplice as suspects in the early October incident, said department spokesman Cpl. L’Jean McKneely.
Police say Allen, along with 17-year-old Charlie Ivery — who is still at large — played a role in the shooting and robbing of a Domino’s Pizza driver in the 4000 block of Shelley Street around 11:15 p.m. on Oct. 1. A third boy, age 15, was arrested in the crime on Oct. 9.
The trio tried to climb inside the delivery vehicle, prompting a struggle that left the 20-year-old driver injured from a gunshot to the arm, police said. The boys then ran away with food meant to be delivered.
Allen, of the 4000 block of St. Gerard Avenue, was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a count of attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. His bond was set at $200,000, according to jail records.
Police say Ivery should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about this incident may contact Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP.
