NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — New Orleans police have released footage of an armed robbery over the weekend with hopes to identify the person believed to be responsible.
On Monday (Nov. 7), NOPD detectives announced they were looking for the pictured female suspect who approached a man and a woman, ages 32 and 26, and demanded their money at gunpoint. Police say the incident happened just before 11 p.m. in the 3700 block of Dauphine Street.
After giving up their credit cards, the man began shouting for help, grabbing the attention of several neighbors, including a witness who started recording the incident on their phone. The man’s cries echo in the background of the video, which shows the suspect hiding behind a metal post, pointing their gun, then running away.
According to the NOPD Major Offense Log, the suspect got into a dark-colored SUV and left the area.
The identity of the suspect has not yet been determined. Detectives continue to collect information regarding the armed robbery.
Anyone with any additional information about the incident is urged to contact NOPD’s Fifth District detectives at (504) 658-6050. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crimestoppers GNO by clicking here or by calling (504) 822-1111.
