NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - New Orleans police release a computer sketch of the man they are looking for in connection with an attempted armed robbery.

Investigators say the incident happened on Saturday in the 3000 block of Pauger Street.

Police say the two victims, two 25-year-old females, they were seated in a vehicle around 3:10 a.m. in front of a home in the area when an unknown black male approached the open front passenger's side window.
