The second and final suspect in an armed robbery and stabbing in Venice turned himself in late Thursday night, according to Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Cmdr. Eric Becnel.
Authorities said Ryan Riley, 30, of Port Sulphur, turned himself in to be booked on counts of armed robbery and aggravated second-degree battery on Thursday night. He joined Vincent “Louie” Turner Jr., 31, also of Port Sulphur, in the Belle Chasse lockup.
The sheriff’s office believes that both men held up a 51-year-old man in the 160 block of Hoist Road in Venice on Sept. 3. They allegedly stole his cellphone and $70 in cash and stabbed him in the right rear hip, before fleeing in a white pickup truck.
Turner had surrendered himself on Tuesday afternoon.
