NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The NOPD is asking for the public's help in finding and identifying two men wanted in connection with two armed robberies of businesses in the Uptown area.

On May 26 just after 5 p.m., a man walked into a Subway in the 1300 block of S. Carrollton Avenue. He walked to the register and ordered a sandwich, then produced a pistol and demanded cash. The store employee complied and handed the suspect an undetermined amount of cash and a sandwich. The suspect fled the store on foot.

On Saturday just after 6 p.m., a man entered the Sally Beauty Supply located in the 700 block of S. Carrollton Avenue. Once inside, the man produced a shotgun and demanded cash. The employees gave the gunman $1,200, and he fled the store on foot.

The first suspect is described as a black male with a dark complexion, 5'8” to 5'9” tall with a slim build and shoulder-length dreadlocks.

The second suspect is described as a black male with a dark complexion, slim build and short black hair.

Both suspects are believed to be responsible to for other robberies in the area.

Second District Detective Latoya Lamb is in charge of the investigation and can be reached at (504) 658-6020
