NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans police are asking for the public's help in finding a 20-year-old suspect in an aggravated burglary and attempted armed robbery.

The incident occurred Wednesday inside a home in the 3300 block of Iberville Street.

At about 8:30 a.m., a man and woman were inside the location when the suspect, identified at Kevin Ellis, allegedly forced his way into the home, pointed a handgun at the victims and demanded money and drugs. When he couldn't get either, he fled the location.

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