NEW ORLEANS - Detectives are asking for the public's assistance in identifying and locating a man wanted in connection with the Sunday armed robbery of a Mid-City bar.

At about 10:30 p.m., the suspect walked in to DMac's Bar & Grill in the 500 block of S. Jefferson Davis Parkway. After learning that the kitchen was closed, he began walking towards the exit. He  then turned back around and pointed a gun at the bartender, demanding money. The bartender complied, and the suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect was described as a black man in his mid-20s with a dark complexion, 5'8" to 5'11" tall with a beard and mustache. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded jacket with white writing on the front, a black and red Chicago Bulls insignia cap, and tan shorts.

The gun was described as a black revolver with what appeared to be rust on it.

The First District Investigative Unit is in charge of the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call 658-6010.
