NOPD Seeking Suspect in Attempted Armed Robbery

The NOPD is asking for the public's assistance in identifying a subject wanted in connection with an attempted armed robbery in the Eighth District.

On February 10, 2023, just after 3:00 a.m., an attempted robbery occurred in the 1300 block of Bourbon Street.  The two victims say the suspect approached them with a gun and demanded their property. 

One of the victims struck the perpetrator and began struggling with him over control of the firearm.  A witness jumped in and managed to take the firearm from the perpetrator, who then fled.

Through investigation, the perpetrator was identified as an unknown black male, (pictured, approximately 20-25 years of age).

Anyone with information regarding this incident or the identity of the suspect is asked to contact the Eighth District at (504) 658-6080 or Crimestoppers anonymously at (504) 822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-7867.
