NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Police are asking the public’s help to identify and locate the suspect who robbed a Central City phone store last week.

The armed man entered the Boost Mobile store in the 2800 block of South Claiborne Avenue last Tuesday (Nov. 8) around 7:19 p.m., when only one employee was inside.

A surveillance video provided Monday by the New Orleans Police Department shows the masked man or teen boy clutching a handgun in his waistband and ordering the employee to open a cash register, before he yanks the cash drawer out himself and walks out the door with it.

Viewer discretion warning for strong language:

Anyone with information on the suspect or incident is asked to call NOPD’s Sixth District detectives at (504) 658-6060 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
