BATON ROUGE – LSU Police say suspect, Brice Poole, is in custody for a robbery outside the LSU Student Union Friday morning.

Police say a middle aged black man wearing a Star Wars t-shirt and yellow Crocs approached a student and said he had a gun and demanded money. The man then escorted the student to the union and made him withdraw money from an ATM. The student gave the man money and he departed.

LSU says Baton Rouge Police assisted LSU police during the search and the man was found north of campus.

LSU said Poole is being booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison with first degree robbery.
