BATON ROUGE - An off-duty officer from out of town foiled an attempted carjacking by a woman Wednesday.
The incident happened around 2 p.m. near the intersection of Laurel Street and 4th Street. Witnesses, including a Baton Rouge police officer, say a woman kidnapped an 83-year-old woman from a parking garage at gunpoint and forced her to drive to a local bank for an unknown amount of cash.
An off-duty Slidell police officer, identified as Dennis Neyland, was close by and saw the victim was in distress. He jumped into action and detained the thief. During their scuffle, witnesses say the woman's clothes came off.
Police have identified the suspect carjacker as 41-year-old Tamikia Raymond. She was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and charged with armed robbery, false imprisonment with a dangerous weapon, and battery of a police officer.
