NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Police released new surveillance images as they search for the masked man who held up a Saint Charles Avenue restaurant November 12.  

The pictures show the man holding what looks like a bag as employees cower in fear inside Vincent's Italian Cuisine. 

Around midnight, the gunman stormed in, herded the employees to the front of the restaurant and ordered them to put money from the cash registers into the bag. 

Investigators say the man was described as about six feet tall with a heavy build. 

They're asking anyone with information to contact the Second District Investigative Unit at 504-658-6020 or contact Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
