NOPD Investigating Seventh District Aggravated Assault

The NOPD is seeking assistance from the public in locating and identifying a suspect in the investigation of an aggravated assault that occurred on March 10, 2020.

On the date of the incident, the pictured suspect entered a store in the 6000 block of Downman Road and engaged in a verbal altercation with the victim. As the subject exited the store, the victim followed to continue talking with another customer. The subject then allegedly approached the victim, struck the victim in the face and went to a vehicle. The suspect then reportedly produced a handgun from the interior of the vehicle and pointed it at the victim before fleeing the scene.
