NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans Police say they're looking for the person who forced a man into a car at gunpoint in the French Quarter, then made him withdraw money from a nearby ATM.

Officers say they're looking for 19-year-old Caleb Kenneth Bartley.  He's accused of robbing a man in the 600 block of Iberville Street on Saturday around 6 a.m.

Officers say Bartley approached the man as if he wanted to just talk to him, but then seconds later Bartley pulled out a gun. Investigators say Bartley then ordered the man inside of a red Toyota Camry carrying two other people. They say Bartley and his accomplices drove the victim to a nearby ATM and made him withdraw $200.

Police say the victim handed Bartley the money and his cell phone, then the robbers took off. Officers say a witness was able to get the license plate number from the red Camry, but police haven't released it yet.

If you have any information on this robbery, you're urged to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
