Baton Rouge- A woman accused of robbing a Baton Rouge ice cream shop is now behind bars.
Deputies arrested 21 year-old Hannah Pressley for robbing the Cold Stone Creamery on Corporate Blvd. on Monday.
Witnesses say Pressley entered the business wearing a bandana on her face, and pulled down her shirt sleeve to make it appear she had a weapon.
They say she demanded money from the store's register, took the cash along with a purse belonging to one of the employees, took off on foot.
One of the employees chased after her and into a nearby AT&T store.
Officers were able to catch Pressley and recover the money taken in the robbery.
She is booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges of First-Degree Robbery and Illegal Possession of Stolen Things.
No bond has been set.
