NOPD Seeking Suspect in Second District Simple Robbery

The NOPD is seeking to locate and identify a subject believed to be responsible for a simple robbery that occurred in the 8200 block of Earhart Boulevard on April 19, 2019.

At about 10:56 a.m., the pictured subject entered a Dollar General store in the block and reportedly proceeded to place an unknown amount of T-shirts and earbud-style headphones in a black bag, which he pulled form his pocket. A female store employee confronted the subject and told him to stop. The employee reportedly attempted to recover the bag of items and removed the bag from the grasp of the unknown male. As she moved toward the rear of the store, the subject allegedly followed and grabbed the employee and the bag and began to pull away. The employee was reportedly pulled to the ground and dragged approximately 5 feet before she released the bag and the subject fled the store with the bag on Earhart towards South Carrollton Avenue and then unknown. He is believed to frequent the area.

Anyone with information regarding this incident or the pictured subject is asked to contact NOPD Second District detectives at 504-658-6020, or to call anonymously to Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
