Person of Interest Sought in St. Claude Stickup


The New Orleans Police Department continued their policy of aggressively seeking “persons of interest” today. These individuals are not classified as suspects, but rather as potential sources of information in a case. In this case, the case involves a woman mugged at an ATM on the 2400 block of St. Claude.
