A Lake Charles man is accused of an armed robbery in Lafayette.

According to a news release from the Lafayette Police Department, accused in the case is 25-year-old David B. Parker. He was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on a charge of armed robbery.

Authorities said at 8:20 a.m. Tuesday, police responded to the 2200 block of Ambassador Caffery Parkway regarding an armed robbery. 

Witnesses said the suspect entered the business wearing a mask and armed with a handgun, demanding money.
