An Uptown business and its customers were robbed Saturday morning, police said.
Around 8:20 a.m., an armed man entered Breads on Oak at 8640 Oak Street and demanded money from the cash register, the New Orleans Police Department said in a preliminary offense log. The suspect took $300 from the register, and then robbed six customers in the store of their cash, police said.
The suspect fled the scene on a red bicycle, NOPD said in a news release.
The suspect is described as 5 feet 11 inches tall. He was wearing green Dickie-style pants, a shirt, black shoes, a dark blue Orlando Magic jacket with royal blue sleeves, a handmade ski mask, a sweater-material beanie with a cuffed bill, and a gray glove on his left hand. He was holding a black handgun in his right hand, police said.
Breads on Oak is near Leake Avenue close to the river.
