A business in the 4900 block of Magazine Street was robbed early Sunday morning, police said.
The business, which was not named in an NOPD alert about the robbery, had just opened at 10 a.m. Sunday when a man clad in a black hooded sweatshirt came in and asked for a product. As the clerk turned around, the man came behind the counter, implied he had a gun, and demanded that the safe be opened, the alert said. When the clerk complied, the suspect took its contents and left.
The suspect was a 6-foot-tall, clean-shaven black man in his 20s, dressed all in dark clothing and wearing black gloves, police said.
Anyone who might have seen him or with other information is encouraged to call NOPD Second District detectives at 658-6020, or, to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward, call CrimeStoppers at 822-1111.
