NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Patrons at an Algiers bar were robbed at gunpoint Wednesday night, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

Around 7:30 p.m., two men and two women were inside Shelia's Fantasy in the 1300 block of Nunez Street when two armed, masked men came into the bar and demanded they get on the floor. 

The men searched their pockets stealing credit cards, cell phones, and wallets. Police say a bag containing $1500 was also taken from the business.

 A description of the suspects was not made available.
