The NOPD is asking the public's assistance in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with a home invasion that occurred Sept. 8 in the 800 block of St. Andrew Street.

Police said at around 9:50 p.m., the 68- year-old male victim was home alone when the doorbell rang. The victim said he opened the front door and saw a black male standing on the porch. The suspect produced a pistol and forced his way into the victim's home.

Once inside, the suspect demanded the victim's wallet and cash. The victim complied and the suspect fled.

The suspect is about 5'7" tall and was last seen wearing a black hooded shirt and blue jeans.

The surveillance image shows the suspect fleeing in a white two- or four-door Mazda.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
