NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The New Orleans Police Department is investigating an armed robbery at a Mid-City bar early Saturday morning.

The incident happened at approximately 12:45 a.m. in the 500 block of Telemachus Street.

According to police, two unknown black males wearing masks entered the Twelve Mile Limit bar.

Both suspects were described as tall, thin black males. One suspect reportedly had a raspy voice and was estimated to be middle-aged.
