An auto-parts store on South Claiborne Avenue was robbed at gunpoint Friday evening, and another robbery was reported in the Irish Channel area of Louisiana Avenue on Sunday evening, New Orleans police said.

Just before 9 p.m. Friday, a man with a gun entered the business in the 4100 block of South Claiborne Avenue and demanded money from the cash register, according to an initial police report. The cashier handed over the money, and the gunman escaped, the report states.

Another armed robbery was reported just before 8 p.m. Sunday in the 900 block of Louisiana Avenue (near Laurel Street), but no report was available on that case Monday morning.

Anyone with information is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 822-1111.
