A Mississippi Gulf Coast man is in the custody of law enforcement after trying to escape authorities while being arrested for armed robbery.

On Friday, February 23, officers with the Gulfport Police Department responded to a business on the 2000 block of East Pass Road in reference to an armed robbery, but no suspect was discovered. After investigating, police determined that 36-year-old Miki Mussa Ibrahim had committed the robbery.

The suspect is said to have entered the business armed with a firearm and demanded money. After obtaining money, Ibrahim fled the scene.

Gulfport Police Department’s SWAT team on Thursday conducted a search warrant and took Ibrahim into custody. During a search of the residence, a firearm was located next to identifying documents belonging to Ibrahim.

He was transported to the Gulfport Police Department, and upon arrival, he slipped his handcuffs and attempted to run away from officers but was quickly apprehended. While in the interview room, Ibrahim attempted to escape by climbing through the ceiling tiles.

Ibrahim is charged with two counts of armed robbery, one count of possession of a weapon after a felony conviction, and one count of escape. He was processed and transported to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center to be held in lieu of his $350,000 bond.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is urged to contact the Gulfport Police Department at (228)868-5959 or Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at (877)787-5898.
