Shreveport Police say they arrested a man after he robbed a stranger who already had given him some of the cash handout he requested.

Andre Okray, 22, was booked into the Shreveport City Jail and charged with simple robbery.

Police say they were called about 1 p.m. to the 400 block of Crockett Street in response to a robbery of an individual.

Authorities there spotted a man running, chased him, and took him into custody.

After questioning, police say they learned that the man they detained had approached the robbery victim and asked for money. The victim reportedly offered the man a small sum of money but was robbed during the act of kindness.

Officers recovered the victim's money after the arrest.
