Ouachita Parish sheriff's deputies arrested a Monroe man on suspicion of armed robbery last week after authorities received a complaint of an armed robbery at Dollar General on Reddix Lane.

The cashier told deputies that a man wearing a mask and gloves held her at gunpoint while he removed cash from the store's register. A second witness said he observed the suspect run out of the store while carrying a gun.

The suspect was identified as Roy Anthony Harris, 21, of 307 Texas Ave., Monroe.

During questioning, Harris admitted to robbing the store with a .357 handgun.

Harris was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center.
