SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Shreveport police are investigating a carjacking at Willis-Knighton Credit Union in south Shreveport.
Somone walks up to a car in the first drive-thru lane, grabs the driver’s hair, steals her purse then drives off in a red Honda.
Police tell us the carjacker pointed a gun at the woman during the altercation.
The video’s timestamp shows this happening after 1 p.m. Thursday while the driver was using the transfer tube.
Several people in the city say they were alarmed to see the video of the robbery.
“It’s was horrifying because I use that bank,” Karen Merritt said. “I try to tell my daughter that things like this do happen and that you need to stay aware at all times.”
Other people say this could possibly be an act of desperation due to the coronavirus pandemic’s effect on jobs.
“It could be crazy and desperate for someone to do this,” Jason Gilcrease said. “I’ve had trouble finding a job because of the coronavirus.”
If you can identify the suspect or the red Honda, you’re asked to contact Shreveport police.
