Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal reports his deputies were called out after a woman says she was robbed by a man armed with a handgun.

The woman told deputies as she was leaving a friend's home in the 400 block of North Landry Drive when a black male came up to her holding a handgun.

She says the man grabbed her purse and took off running towards Fulton Street in New Iberia.

The woman was not hurt, and was able to tell deputies he was a black male about six feet tall.

Deputies are asking anyone with any information about the case to call the Iberia Sheriff's Office at 337-369-3711.
