A male victim was struck by an unknown male while at a bar in the 4800 block of Magazine Street on December 26, 2016. The NOPD is searching for the suspect in this incident, who was caught on surveillance video.

The suspect is described as a white male believed to be in his mid-to-late twenties, standing approximately 5’8” with a stocky/muscular build, short dark hair and glasses. He was last seen wearing a green or olive T-shirt and possibly khaki or grey pants.
