The NOPD is asking for public’s help in finding and identifying three suspects who are wanted in connection to an armed robbery in the Carrollton neighborhood.

The incident happened April 6, about 6:45 a.m. in the 7300 block of Sycamore Street.

Police say when officers arrived a male victim told them that an unknown male approached his truck window and pulled out a handgun demanding money and his car keys.

The third suspect was described as a black male, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 160 lbs.
