Suspect Sought in Armed Robbery on City Park Avenue

The NOPD is seeking to locate and identify a suspect believed to be responsible for an armed robbery that occurred in the 500 block of City Park Avenue on August 1, 2017.

At about 2 a.m., an unknown subject believed to be a black female entered the northeast door of the Bud’s Broiler restaurant, approaching from N. Anthony Street. The subject carried what was determined to be a black toy handgun with an orange tip, removable magazine and mounted tactical light. The subject then allegedly forced an employee into the storage refrigerator and utilized a set of keys to unlock a locker containing a money deposit bag. The subject entered another office room and removed additional money bags, also containing cash. The subject then fled west on N. Anthony Street, discarding the keys and toy gun along with a bra and blue baseball cap.

The suspect is described as standing approximately 5’1” to 5’4” in height with a stocky build, attired in a black mask, white t-shirt and tan long shorts.

Anyone with information on this suspect or this incident is asked to contact Third District detectives at 504-658-6030. Citizens with information that can help solve crimes are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
