NEW ORLEANS, LA– The NOPD is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a pair that robbed a man in the 12300 block of the I-10 Service Road.
Around 10:30 p.m., a 25-year-old man told police he was smoking a cigarette in the parking lot of an apartment complex when he was approached by two unknown females. Moments after conversing with the females, an unknown black male walked up and demanded the victim’s money after implying he had a pistol in his pocket. The victim feared for his safety and handed the suspect $160 in cash. The suspect ordered the victim to ride with one of the females to an ATM to get more cash. The victim drove with the female to an ATM in the 7000 block of Bullard Avenue. The victim withdrew $200 in cash and gave it to the female. The victim drove the female back to the apartment complex, where she and the male suspect fled in an unknown black SUV.
The male suspect is described as a black male, muscular build, light complexion. He was last seen wearing a grey long sleeved shirt and blue jeans.
Video surveillance in the area captured video of the female suspect and it can be viewed below.
The Seventh District Investigative unit is in charge of the investigation.
