Police say the "Person of Interest" was see getting into a white Toyota 4-Runner, driven by an unidentified black male, right before the robbery happened at the yogurt shop.
On May 24 around noon, Lafayette Police were called out to Yogurtland in the 100 block of East Kaliste Saloom Road after an armed robbery was reported.

Employees gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash, and the suspect fled in an unknown direction. No one was injured during the crime.
