NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The NOPD continues to search for an armed robbery suspect who robbed a cab driver, and the department is seeking assistance from the public.


At approximately 2:15 a.m. on October 9, 2016, the victim reported that he responded to a call for a taxi in the 3200 block of General DeGaulle Drive. The suspect got into the cab and the driver took the man to the intersection of Texas Drive and Seine Street. Upon arrival at that location, the passenger produced a knife and the two became involved in a physical altercation that left the driver injured. The suspect then took the money from the cab and fled.

 
The suspect is described as 5'6" to 5'8" tall and weighing 130-150 pounds. He has a dark complexion, thin build, and is approximately 25 - 30 years old. On his left hand, he appeared to have a tattoo of the letters M.O.B. and an arrow.   
 
If you have any information regarding this incident or the identity of the perpetrator, please contact any Fourth District detective at 504-658-6040. Citizens with information that can help solve crimes are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.
