BATON ROUGE- Police believe a homeless man robbed a gas station near downtown on Christmas Eve.

Police arrested Terry Casey Wednesday when an officer patrolling Convention Street recognized Casey's bike. It matched the description of the person who biked away from the Chevron convenience store after ransacking it to get cash from the cash register.

Investigators believe Casey is the man who walked into the store and acted like he had a weapon. When the clerk tossed the key to the locked register when the man, identified as Casey, demanded cash things got violent. Casey is accused of smashing the register and breaking the drawer open and stealing the money.

He was booked into jail on first degree robbery charges.

His listed address was the homeless shelter.
