Juvenile arrested for pointing gun at store employee

Thibodaux, La. - The Thibodaux Police Department arrested a juvenile Monday for terrorizing after he pointed a gun at an employee of a business in the 300 Block of North Canal Boulevard.

Monday afternoon around 4:30pm, an employee believing the three Juveniles who had entered the business were there to steal, approached one of the Juveniles to find a black handgun pointed at her. The employee was able to get the gun from the juvenile.

The gun, resembling a black semi-automatic handgun, was confirmed to be a pellet gun.

The juveniles, who had discarded another pellet gun prior to police's arrival, admitted that the guns were stolen a month prior from another Thibodaux business.

The juvenile who pointed the gun at the employee was placed under arrest, and the other two juveniles were released to their guardians.
