BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - Bossier City Police have released surveillance video of the suspect in an attempted armed robbery of a local family, in hopes that it will generate tips that will lead to an arrest.
It happened at the Cloverdale Apartments in the 2200 block of Shed Road around 3 p.m. Wednesday.
