New Orleans Police are searching for a suspect who allegedly robbed another man, then hit him over the head with a gun.

Investigators say on Friday, the 51-year-old victim was arguing with 31-year-old Danny Dillon in the 6000 block of Chef Menteur Highway. They say the argument escalated, and Dillon pulled out a pistol. Police say Dillon robbed the victim of his cell phone, then hit him on the head with the gun and ran away.

Once caught, Dillon will be booked with one count of armed robbery with a firearm.

If you can help police find him, call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
