Suspect sought for attempted armed robbery on Old Gentilly Road
NOPD needs the public’s assistance in identifying and locating an armed robbery suspect.
On May 8, at approximately 9:39 p.m., a man attempted an armed robbery at the Motel 6 located in the 4200 block of Old Gentilly.
Three hotel guests were standing in the hallway outside of their room when an unknown white male in a dark shirt brandished a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded their belongings. The victims told the suspect they had nothing to give, so he fled. He was seen getting into a newer model white Ford pick-up truck.
If you know the identity or whereabouts of the suspect please contact Detective Matthew Morrison or any Third District detective at (504) 658-6030.
