NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Detectives released a surveillance image of the man who allegedly pointed a gun at a security officer at the SteinMart on Tchopitoulas Street.

The New Orleans Police Department said the guy is wanted for armed robbery.

A private security guard told officers that he noticed the man shoplifting around 5 p.m. Saturday and tried to stop him.

The worker said the guy pulled out a gun, then ran away.

Investigators described the man they're looking for as about 5'8" tall and 175 pounds.

He may also have a couple of distinguishing features; investigators said he had a birthmark on his face and his hair was in a sort of "Mohawk"style .

He was last seen wearing a "Storm Trooper" hoodie.

Call Crimestoppers at 822-1111 if you can help police find him.
