BATON ROUGE – A man wanted for armed robbery was arrested after a foot chase and search in downtown Baton Rouge this morning.

27-year-old Anthony Louis was charged with armed robbery, and had outstanding warrants for robbery and theft from district court and Baker Police.

Investigators with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office said they received a tip this morning that Louis was working for a catering company at the River Center downtown.  When deputies made contact with him around 9 a.m. he took off on foot.

The sheriff’s office, BRPD and City Constables set up a perimeter around the area and caught Louis at Main Street and 3rd Street about 20 minutes later.

Louis is accused of robbing a friend at gunpoint on Oct. 9, stealing electronics including laptop computers and camcorders.
