Sheriff's deputies in Iberia Parish seek a pair of armed robbers, who used Facebook to set their victim up for a holdup. Sheriff's spokesman Captain Ryan Turner says the 28-year-old victim had been communicating with a man on the social media website, and agreed to meet him face-to-face. The woman arrived at the New Iberia address given by the Facebook friend, but was quickly confronted outside the home by two armed men who took her money. 

The suspects fled on foot. Turner says it appears the social media friend was maneuvering her into a robbery. He says investigators are looking into the identity of the person the victim was communicating with. He says the robbers may not have known anyone who lived at the address the victim was given. He says they are seeking two black males, medium height and build, who were both wearing blue jeans and grey "hoodies". he asks anyone in the New Iberia area who has tips on the crime to call 337-369-3711.
