NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -- Detectives with the New Orleans Police Department are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at a business in the Marigny. The incident occurred Sunday around 5:30 p.m. in the 2500 block of St. Claude Avenue.

The employee handed the suspect $400 dollars from the register, because of fear that the suspect was armed. The suspect then ran out of a back door to the business.
