Two charged with robbing groom, wedding party at gunpoint in Harvey motel

A West Bank man and woman have been charged with barging into a Harvey motel room to rob a groom and his wedding party about hour before the nuptials were scheduled to take place.

Jerrold Jackson, 20, and Alicia Sturdivant, 18, are also accused of stealing the groom's car for a getaway vehicle for themselves and two unidentified accomplices after the holdup at the Home2 Suites, 1701 11th St., according to court and arrest records.

The Jefferson Parish district attorney's office on Monday charged Jackson and Sturdivant, both of Harvey, with four counts each of armed robbery and one count of auto theft. Jackson was also charged with aggravated flight from an officer and a second count of auto theft in a separate case, according to court records.

The holdup occurred Dec. 12. The groom, a 21-year-old Gulfport, Mississippi, resident, was staying at the motel with relatives and friends as they prepared for the wedding, which was being held at the Harvey home of a relative, the Sheriff's Office said.

About 3 p.m., four strangers, one armed, entered his motel room through an open door and demanded the belongings of the groom, his brother and two friends, all from Mississippi, authorities said. As the gunman pointed his weapon, his accomplices patted down the victims, stealing mobile phones, wallets, cash and other property.

The robbers also took the keys to the groom's 2017 Honda Civic, the Sheriff's Office said. They hopped into the car and drove off.

Some of the property was later recovered, after the robbers tossed it from the car window during the getaway.

Jackson was arrested the next day after leading deputies on a chase through Metairie in the stolen Honda, authorities said. He was still wearing some of the same clothing he wore during the robbery, they said.

Sturdivant was arrested Jan. 4 in Harvey. No details were available about how she was linked to the holdup.

Jackson and Sturdivant are scheduled to be arraigned March 10. Both were being held Wednesday at the parish jail in Gretna. Bond for Jackson was set at $735,500, for Sturdivant at $625,500 bond.
