MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) -Monroe Police responded to three separate robbery incidents Thursday and Friday.

On Thursday, a robbery was called in just after 10pm on Erin Street Police say the victim and a witness stated they were in the parking lot of the apartment complex when they were approached by two unknown black males. One of the suspects pointed a silver handgun at the victim and demanded property. The victim handed over a cell phone, and the suspects fled. Police did not locate the suspects and the victim could not give any further description of the men.

Friday night, a female subject reported her phone was forcibly taken from her while she walking on Hippolyte Avenue. The victim stated that a juvenile approached her from behind, struck her in the face, and took her phone. The suspect fled the scene, but officers were able to locate the suspect a short distance away. The suspect, an 11 year old black male, was located at his residence and arrested for simple robbery. He was placed in Green Oaks Detention Center.

Around 10:20pm Friday, officers were flagged down by a victim on Grayling Lane. She told police she was in her vehicle dropping a friend off at a party when she was approached by Joshua Perry of Monroe. Perry and the victim began arguing about an ongoing dispute concerning a missing cell phone. The victim attempted to leave when Perry allegedly "punched out" the passenger door glass of her vehicle and grabbed the victim's purse and cell phone. The victim says Perry is removed $400 in cash from the purse and threw the purse back inside the vehicle. Perry was located, questioned, and admitted to damaging the vehicle but denied taking any of the victim's property. The property was not recovered, but injuries to Perry's hand were consistent with the victim's story. Perry was arrested and booked at OCC for simple robbery.
