MANDEVILLE, La. - Four teenagers in Mandeville were robbed by men armed with a baseball bat while sitting in a parking lot on Lakeshore Drive Tuesday night, according to the Mandeville Police Department.

At 10:33 p.m., the victims, between 18 and 19-years-old, were in their car in the 2200 block of Lakeshore Dr. when the suspects yanked the door open and demanded money.

The victims gave the suspects approximately $87 before the thieves fled in a light colored sedan.

The victims caught part of the license plate as it turned on to Coffee Street and called the police.

Investigators were able to compile a list of possible suspects from the partial license plate, police said.

On Thursday, police arrested Fidell Johnson, 22, on an armed robbery charge.

A warrant based on an armed robbery charge has been issued for Austin Jenkins, 17.
