The NOPD is asking for the public's assistance in locating and identifying a man and woman who are wanted in connection with an armed robbery that occurred Aug. 17 along the edge of the French Quarter.

Around 10:45 p.m., investigators say two people were sitting by the river near Conti St. when they were approached by a woman and her male accomplice.

The woman first asked for a light for her cigarette, then police say she produced a pistol and demanded the victims' property while the male accomplice watched. 

The victims complied, and both suspects then fled on foot towards the French Quarter. 

The female suspect is described as a black female, 25 to 30 years of age, 5'10"tall, medium build.

She was last seen wearing a cloth or bandanna covering her head.

Witnesses say she wore a white baggy shirt with basketball shorts. 

The male accomplice was described as a black male, 5'9" tall, between 21-25 years old. 

He last seen wearing no shirt, blue shorts with a bandanna over his head. 

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
