ST. AMANT, LA (NBC33) — Deputies in Ascension Parish need your help tonight solving a home invasion that happened in St. Amant last Friday night.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office reports that the incident happened around 11:00 p.m. Authorities responded to a home on Church Point Road near Highway 431 after receiving a call that an elderly couple had been robbed.
The woman said a man came to the door asking to use the phone. When she let him in, we're told the suspect pulled a handgun and demanded money.
