The Louisiana State Fire Marshal's Office arrested an armed robbery suspect late Sunday night. When officers arrived, they found a male victim with several gunshot wounds.

North Bay police responded to a report of an attempted robbery at a Cassells Street business.

Baker, 41, with no permanent address, should be considered "armed and unsafe", police spokesman Joel DeSpain said, urging anyone who sees him or the vehicle he allegedly stole to call 911, not Crime Stoppers. They say the suspects then stole a wrecker, which already had the keys in it, and fled the scene. Police say the suspect was arrested and had "no device on his person".

Police did not immediately release the suspects identities.

The man was wearing dark trousers, a black hooded sweatshirt and tan boots, a store employee told police.

The suspect is seen dressed in black clothing and covering his face with a handkerchief in all of the robberies.

Detectives encourage anyone with information about these robberies to call the Norfolk Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. She said as he turned back around, she noticed he was pointing a gun at her and was demanding money from the register.
