BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

 The Baton Rouge Police Department is looking for an armed robbery suspect of a robbery that happened earlier Saturday afternoon.

According to Cpl. Don Coppola, a suspect entered Leo’s Service Market, located at 945 East Blvd at around 3:55 p.m., armed with a handgun and demanded money.
