LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Lake Charles Police Department arrested one man involved with jumping and robbing a victim along with two other suspects who haven't been found, according to Lt. Kevin Kirkum of LCPD.
Around 4:45 am on Apr. 25 2018, police responded to a report of an armed robbery and beating of a victim on Gerstner Memorial Drive, says Kirkum.
Kirkum says after investigating, detectives learned that Jarret Raiford, 24, and two other men had beaten the victim with a hammer and a pipe, then robbed him. The suspect suffered facial lacerations, facial fractures, and broken teeth.
Raiford was arrested and charged with armed robbery and aggravated second-degree battery, Kirkum says. His bond is set at $350,000.
Police are still attempting to verify the other two suspects, says Kirkum. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lake Charles Police Department or Lead Detective Dustin Gaudet.
