Suspect identified in New Orleans East robbery

Police have identified one of the two suspects accused of committing an armed robbery in New Orleans East.

According to NOPD, Ashley Wooten is wanted in connection with a robbery that occurred in the 12300 block of the I-10 service road on Jan. 18.

According to police, the 25-year-old male victim said he was smoking a cigarette in the parking lot of an apartment complex  around 10:30 p.m. when he was approached by Wooten. According to the victim, an unknown man walked up while he was talking to Wooten and demanded his money, implying he had a gun.

The victim gave up $160 in cash, then the male suspect ordered the victim to get in a car with Wooten and go to an ATM to get more cash. Wooten drove him to an ATM in the 7000 block of Bullard Avenue where the victim withdrew $200 in cash and gave it to her. She then drove him back to the apartment complex and fled in a black SUV with the other suspects.
