Couple exiting Mid-City bar robbed at gunpoint

NEW ORLEANS - Police are looking for two subjects in an armed robbery that occurred Saturday night outside a Mid-City bar. 

At about 10:45 p.m., two men were seen loitering near the intersection of S. Jefferson Davis Parkway and D'Hemecourt Street. They approached a couple that exited Dmac's Bar and Grill, and while one subject wearing a hooded sweatshirt produced a handgun and stole the female victim's purse, the second subject demanded money from the male victim.

The men then fled northbound on Baudin Street.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111. Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward for tips that lead to an arrest and indictment.
