15 year-old in custody for robbery and kidnapping

RIVER RIDGE, LA (WVUE) - Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies arrest a Kenner teenager accused of robbing and kidnapping a woman in River Ridge.    

The sheriff's office says a 15 year-old held up a 25-year-old woman at gunpoint on Bengal Road in River Ridge last night.

Detectives say when the woman told the teen she didn't have any money but said her aunt may, the teen ordered her to drive to her aunt's apartment on Marion Court.

After arriving at the apartment, investigators say the aunt told the suspect to leave, which he did.

Deputies later arrested the suspect on Jefferson Highway.

He faces charges of armed robbery, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated burglary.
