The Red Star restaurant on Earhart Boulevard was robbed at gunpoint Monday night, New Orleans police said.

The owner, a 40-year-old man, was counting the money behind the counter inside the restaurant in the 8300 block of Earhart around 9:25 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17, when an armed man entered, according to the initial NOPD report. The gunman demanded the cash from the register, so the owner handed over $300 and the intruder left, the report states.

The suspect was described as a black man wearing a black hat, a gray hooded sweatshirt, black jeans and black gloves, the report states.

Further details were not immediately available. 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.
