SU police arrest three in dorm robbery try

Southern University police arrested three students Thursday accused in an attempted armed robbery and home invasion on campus in late February.

Police booked Jaleel Bridges, 18, of DeQuincy; Rodney Briggs, 20, of Kentwood; and Deylan Jones, 19, of Mesquite, Texas, into Parish Prison on counts of attempted armed robbery and home invasion, booking records show.

The three, along with a fourth student, are accused of breaking into a Ulysses Jones Hall dorm room the night of Feb. 26 and demanding clothes and money from the dorm room’s resident at gunpoint, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The resident told the intruders all his clothes were in his girlfriend’s room in “Building 200,” the affidavit says, so he guided the quartet there, intentionally following a path monitored by video cameras. When the victim entered the girlfriend’s room, she shut the door on the four men and called authorities.

The other man in the attempted robbery, Kailin Sylvain, no age or address available, is still being sought by authorities, said Ed Pratt, a Southern University spokesman.

Bridges, Briggs and Jones have been “emergency suspended pending the outcome of their case,” Pratt said.

He said Sylvain also could be suspended upon arrest.
