Police are asking for help finding a woman wanted in connection with an armed robbery that happened Tuesday in New Orleans East.

The woman’s first name may possibly be Sabrina, police said.

A 41-year-old man told detectives he met the woman at a daiquiri shop in the 5700 block of Crowder Boulevard, where she insisted they get a room at a hotel nearby, in the 5800 block of Read Boulevard.

The man said he agreed to purchase the room. Once inside, he went into the bathroom to take a shower. The woman entered the bathroom, produced a pistol and demanded his money and cell phone.

The man said he complied and handed the woman over $900 in cash. The woman then fled.

Seventh District Detective Ashley Boult is in charge of the investigation and can be reached at (504) 658-6080.
