 Kenner - On Friday, March 4, 2016, the Kenner Police Department arrested Brayan Zuniga-Lopez, 22, of 4120 Trenton Street, Metairie, and charged him with the crime of armed robbery. 

 At approximately 1:48 p.m., Friday, March 4, 2016, Zuniga-Lopez entered the Kwik Saver store, located at 2525 W. Metairie, in Kenner.  While inside the store Zuniga-Lopez produced a knife and robbed the cashier at knife point.  Zuniga-Lopez fled the store, at which time witnesses observed him to enter a red vehicle and flee into Metairie.

 At the time of this press release, Zuniga-Lopez remains in custody; his bond was set at $75,000.00.
