The pictured subjects are wanted in connection with an armed robbery incident that occurred at or around 10:55 p.m. on Saturday, May 26, 2018, at the Shell gas station located in the 4700 block of Canal Street.

Two male subjects, with masks covering the bottom portion of their face, entered the business and pointed a gun at the cashier and demanded the money. One of the subjects went behind the counter and grabbed the cash register. The subject then grabbed the victim’s purse, which contained her driver’s license, and removed several packs of cigarettes from the shelf. Both subjects fled the scene, heading eastbound on North St. Patrick Street.

The first perpetrator is described as a skinny black male, standing approximately 5’10 tall, wearing a gray and black hoodie and stoned washed jeans. The second perpetrator is described as a medium build black male, standing approximately 5’7 tall, wearing a black and red coat and stoned washed jeans.

Anyone with any information that can help officers identify and locate the pictured subjects should call 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.
