One arrested after two gas stations robbed in one night
BATON ROUGE - Deputies arrested a man for his involvement in one of two armed robberies that happened in the same area.
According to arrest documents, on November 25, 2018, at approximately 9:20 p.m. an unidentified suspect robbed a Circle K on Coursey Boulevard. At the time of the incident, authorities say the man was armed with a black semi-automatic pistol.
On the same night at approximately 10 p.m., another Circle K on Perkins Road was robbed at gunpoint. The robber, identified as Anthony Radosta, was also armed with a black semi-automatic pistol.
After reviewing surveillance footage from both scenes, authorities believe the incidents are related. Documents say the same gun was used in both crimes.

The affidavit didn't say if the second suspect had been arrested.
