The victim was leaving the Office Depot in the 1400 block of St. Charles Avenue around 8:20 p.m. Jan. 9, when he was confronted by a man who demanded his money, said NOPD Sgt. Daniel Scanlan during the Sixth District’s weekly meeting of ranking officers.
“The victim had a concealed-carry permit, exposed the pistol to him and asked if he really wanted to rob him,” Scanlan said.
Instead, the suspect turned and fled, Scanlan said. No identifying description of him was immediately available.
