SHREVEPORT, Louisiana (KTBS) — A Shreveport man is charged with armed robbery after Shreveport police say he attacked a store clerk with a tree branch.

Willie Mandigo, 33, was arrested Tuesday morning after patrol units responded to a store in the 600 block of East 70th Street. The store clerk suffered multiple lacerations to his hands and arms.

Officers identified Mandigo as the one who attacked the clerk and stole his keys. A good Samaritan saw what happened, helped the victim and recovered Mandigo’s stolen items, police said.

The victim was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
