New Orleans, La. - Police have arrested a suspect in the robbery and shooting of an employee inside a Bourbon Street strip club.

The NOPD's Violent Offender Warrant Squad arrested 22-year old Marion George Monday morning at a home on Beech Street in New Orleans East.

He's currently being held on armed robbery and aggravated second degree battery charges.

Police say around 5:3am on November 12th, George entered Little Darlings in the 400 block of Bourbon.

They say he's the man seen shooting his way into the manager's office, shooting the manager in the leg and then taking off with a backpack full of cash.

George was released from probation in February for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
