One arrested in New Iberia robbery

A New Iberia man was arrested this week in an armed robbery of a convenience store on Terrace Boulevard.

Armed with a knife, Harold W. Parker, 58, robbed a Circle K store and then ran away, Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office Lt. Richard Fleming said.

Authorities made the arrest after a deputy noticed Parker — a man who fit an employee’s description of the robber — in the area of Lewis and Dale streets and questioned him, Fleming said in a release.

Parker was booked into the parish jail on one count of armed robbery.

Fleming said the investigation continues.
