NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans Police officers arrested two men for an armed robbery in New Orleans East.

Investigators say around noon on September 2, 2016, three men met the victim near a gas station in the neighborhood, then walked toward the Executive Apartment Complex, where three more men joined the group.

Three of the subjects had handguns, and ordered the victim to remove his shorts and wallet. One of the suspects then punched the victim in the face.

The victim identified two of the robbers to police, who later arrested Sebastian Polk, 22, and Dale Mitchell, 21.

The four remaining suspects have not been identified and are still at large. If you can help police identify them, call the NOPD's Seventh District at (504) 658-6070 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111. If you call Crimestoppers, you do not have to give your name, and you could be eligible for a reward.
