ALGIERS, La. (WGNO) — New Orleans police are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating a man accused of an armed robbery at an Algiers business over the weekend.

Officials with the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) say at about 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 21, a masked person entered a business in the 2900 block of General De Gaulle Drive with a gun in hand, walked behind the counter, and told the clerk to open the cash register.

The clerk complied with the demand and the man reportedly took the cash from both registers and left the scene.

NOPD officials said surveillance cameras captured the wanted subject wearing a white jacket, a “Boys in the Hood” graphic t-shirt, a baseball cap, camouflage pants, a black mask and red, black and white Nike shoes.

Anyone with information about the incident can call NOPD Fourth District detectives at (504)-658-6040. Anonymously reports can be made by calling Crimestoppers of Greater New Orleans at (504)-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
