A 30-year-old man is sought by the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office on a
warrant alleging he robbed and beat an Arabi man he knew after luring him
from a residence on Friday, March 25, Chief Deputy Sheriff James Pohlmann
According to investigators, David Roig, a St. Bernard native who has served
time in prison and should be considered armed, and an unknown accomplice
robbed the 52-year-old victim in front of the man's home in mid-afternoon
after calling him and asking him to meet at a location in New Orleans.
Police say the victim got into his truck parked near his apartment on Angela
Street in Arabi when he was approached by two men who laid in wait for him,
both wearing masks.
He said he could recognize Roig as one of the men and that he struck him in
the head with a pistol. A large amount of money was stolen from him, he
reported. The other man hasn't been identified.
Roig is also a suspect in a home burglary in Chalmette earlier in the same
day in which a gun was stolen and is probably the weapon used in the
robbery, Pohlmann said.
Anyone with information on Roig's whereabouts should call the Sheriff's
Office at (504) 271-2501 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111
