Surveillance video released by the New Orleans Police Department shows the robbery of the Magnolia Discount Market on Airline Highway, and police are hoping the public can help them identify a suspect, authorities said.
An unidentified masked suspect entered the convenience store in the 9200 block of Airline around 2 a.m. Aug. 23 with his gun drawn, according to a NOPD report. He then held the two victims behind the counter at gunpoint, until they handed over $1,800 in cash from the register, the report states.
The suspect can be seen fleeing across the parking lot, heading towards Palm Street.
The suspect is described as wearing a white bandana over his face, latex gloves, black hat, grey short sleeve shirt, black pants and black shoes.
Anyone with information is urged to call the NOPD Sixth District station at 658-6060 to speak to a detective or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
