NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans Police have a picture, but not a name of the man they say tried to hold up up a gas station earlier this month. 

Investigators say the man walked into the Shell station on Elysian Fields Avenue August 10. 

They say the robber implied he had a gun in his waistband and demanded money from the cashier. 

But, police say the cashier got his own gun. The would be robber took off. 

Investigators could use some help identifying the man in the surveillance photograph. 

Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
