SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) -

Slidell Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a local massage parlor Wednesday.

Around 5:45 p.m., Slidell Police received a 911 call about an armed robbery at Number 1 Massage Spa in the 1500 block Gause Boulevard. The victim told officers that an unknown man entered the establishment and asked for a massage. After the massage was finished, the man brandished a “black colored gun” and demanded money.

That brings the total to eight animals Valerio killed while on the loose. Yet, visitors weren't deterred. In fact, some say the attack was their motivation.
