NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A man was robbed at gunpoint in the Lower Garden District after offering to help what seemed like a driver in need.

According to a preliminary report from NOPD, the 39-year-old male victim approached the stopped vehicle near the corner of Magazine and Josephine around 3:41 a.m. on March 26. When he offered his help, the driver pulled out a gun and demanded his wallet and cellphone.

The report said the wallet had no money, so the armed robber gave it back and then fled with the victim's cell phone.

Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to call CRIMESTOPPERS at 504-822-1111.
