NOPD is looking for a suspect wanted in connection to an armed robbery in the 1600 block of Elysian Fields.
The victim reported that on January 21, 2017, at 11:02 p.m., he met an acquaintance on North Roman Street. The acquaintance asked the victim to give her and her male cousin a ride to the cousin’s residence.

He was wearing a dark gray or blue hoodie with blue jeans and black Air Force One shoes. The suspect is known to frequent the Mandeville/St. Roch area with a black female known as “Slim."

In Louisiana, an armed robbery conviction requires the offender to be imprisoned at hard labor for 10 – 99 years, without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence. When a firearm is used in the commission of the crime, the offender will be imprisoned for an additional 5 years that will be served consecutively to the original sentence.
