Breads on Oak and its customers were robbed at gunpoint Saturday morning, but New Orleans police are hoping that surveillance video of the gunman will lead to his identification and arrest, authorities said.
The suspect rode a red bicycle to the front door of Breads on Oak at 8640 Oak around 8:20 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, and pointed a gun at the cashier and customers, according to a news release about the robbery. He grabbed money out of the cash register, then left the business on his bicycle, the report states.
The suspect is described as a 5-foot-11 black man wearing “green Dickies-style pants and shirt, black shoes, a dark blue Orlando Magic jacket with royal blue sleeves, a handmade ski mask, sweater-material beanie with a cuffed bill [and] a gray glove on left hand,” the report states.
Anyone with information is urged to call the NOPD Second District station at 658-6020 to speak to a detective, or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
I’m surprised someone didn’t take his bike. Looks like he left it unlocked.
nice, detailed description. “a handmade ski mask” – does that mean a ski mask crocheted by his grandma or a ski mask cut out of an old hoodie?
