A Shreveport man is behind bars in connection to a string of ATM robberies.

The robberies happened on September 12. A woman called police to report that three to five men armed with at least one handgun approached her at the Regions Bank in the 1600 block of North Market Street.

She was able to drive away, and the suspects fled. A short time later, police learned that a man was robbed at the same ATM by five armed men. The victim told police the men took his money and cell phone before and then fled the scene. The victim received minor injuries when the men hit him in the head with a gun.

Four men have been arrested, and police arrested 20-year-old Demarsay Washington shortly after 4 p.m. Monday after a brief car chase. He was taken to the Shreveport City Jail for his alleged role in the robberies. Washington is being held on a $175,000 bond.
