NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans police are trying to find the gunman who robbed a donut shop in Gentilly over the weekend.  The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

The robbery happened Sunday, April 22, at about 10:45 in the morning at Daddy’s Donuts on Caton Street.  A security camera recorded the entire attack.

The video shows customers at the business milling about when a gunman rushes through the front door with a pistol.  The robber was wearing a camouflage hooded jacket, beige pants, and red and white Puma sneakers.

The robber forced everyone to get behind the counter and ordered an employee to give him the money from the store’s cash register.

After getting the cash, the robber is seen on the video running out of the front door.

The NOPD also released a second piece of video in the case.  It shows the robber with another man.  Police say the video was recorded shortly after the robbery.  They say after the pair met up, they left the area together.
