Ama woman kicks and flees from spillway robber
The woman told police that she was filling up her water truck at the Bayou Trepagnier pump station at 7 a.m. on Oct. 20 when she was grabbed by a black male. When the man told her to give him all of her money, the woman emptied out her pockets and gave him $7. The robber then threw her to the ground, ripping her clothes.
The woman says the man then reached behind his back and told her “I am not finished with you yet.” At that point, the woman kicked the robber, which gave her time to get up off the ground and get into her truck.
The woman then headed south on the east guide levee and made her way to the ATV parking lot. She knew that some workers were at that location near a construction sand pit.
The woman described the robber as being between 30 to 40 years old and wearing a black shirt. She says she observed a tattoo on the top of the man's right wrist, which looked similar to a cougar, tiger or a wildcat. The man had a deep voice and had several braids in his hair.
He also had a small scar on the center of his upper lip and fled in what the woman says was a dark-colored Toyota pickup truck.
The incident is under investigation, and anyone having any information about the crime is asked to contact Det. Brad Walsh at 985-783-1135 or 985-783-6807.

Destrehan girls still a force - 2038 views
That the Destrehan girls basketball team is dominating its summer competition won’t surprise many. That the Lady Wildcats are essentially doing it with a split-squad roster, however, should be truly frightening for future opponents.
