Six masked suspects steal jewelry, handbags at gunpoint in Mid-City on Christmas Eve

Ricky Williams said he was at work Tuesday morning on the 2200 block of South St. Lawrence Boulevard at about 7:30 a.m. when a man wearing a ski mask entered a store and demanded that he hand over the items on display.

“The man approached his window and told him, ‘I have an unloaded gun and I’m about to shoot you,'” said Williams, who grabbed the cash register and ran out the store to his car, and he began to drive home when he got a call from his wife.

The man had fled in a gold Dodge Ram pickup, which was traveling south on South St. Lawrence with a high profile and plate that appeared to be stolen.

Williams said when he pulled his car into the alley behind his apartment complex, he saw the suspect driving away with a man wearing a ski mask and a ski mask in the passenger seat of the truck.

“My first thought was ‘Run, run, run,’ but because I was afraid of being caught, I called 911,” Williams said. “I was screaming at the phone, telling the officers what happened.”

Williams said he was taken by police officers to the scene of the crime in two police cruisers, where he got a good look at the truck and the driver.

“He said, ‘Get your hands on the truck or I’m going to come back with his head'” said Williams.

Williams said he did try to talk to the driver, only to have a police officer tell him to leave.

“I said, ‘I’ll leave when you say “get off the truck,'”‘ said Williams, and he said that the police officer did not agree to let him leave.

Williams said the officers then took him into custody and he was taken to the Mid-City police district station to be questioned.

Williams said it took two hours of questioning before he was taken into custody and his cell phone was taken away.

“I was crying because I wanted to make sure that I was not seen talking to
