New Iberia Police Capt. Leland Laseter said officers were called to the 900 block of E. Admiral Doyle Dr. at around 6:25 p.m. on Sunday, June 5. Officers were told two men had stolen several items in the store, and as employees attempted to confront the suspects, they got into a red Chevy Impala and attempted to flee the scene.
As they attempted to flee, Laseter said an employee was struck by a vehicle and dragged through the parking lot. The employee sustained “major injuries,” according to Laseter, and was taken to a local hospital.
Anyone knowing the identity of the suspects are asked to contact the New Iberia Police Department at (337) 369-2306 or the Iberia Parish Crimestoppers at (337) 364-TIPS. Anonymous tips may also be submitted through the Crimestoppers P3 Tips App.
