New Orleans Police are warning workers to be careful after a pair of robberies as local businesses were closing.
"The victims were closing the store for the day when they were approached by two unknown males holding handguns," police Spokeswoman Remi Braden said in a
The crimes happened at Cooter Brown's Bar and Grill on Carrollton and Domino's Pizza at 10500 Chef Menteur Highway.
She says in the robbery at Domino's earlier this month the suspects attacked the workers.
"One of the subjects put a gun to one of the victim's head and demanded he open the safe. The second subject forced the other victim into the kitchen and told him to open the kitchen safe. When the victim told the subject he did not have the key, the subject kicked him in his ribs," according to Braden.
At Cooter Brown's the crime was similar.
Braden says, "The subjects approached two employees who were cleaning the grill area and force them the rear office. The subjects force one of the employees to open a small desk safe."
While they covered their faces, police hope releasing the photos of the suspects can trigger leads
