Cops say an armed robber held up a man on Royal street just after 9:00am Wednesday.

The man was in the 300 block of Royal when it happened, the same block as the NOPD 8th District Police station.

"The Victim was walking to his hotel in the 800 block of Common St. when he was approached by an unknown white male wearing all black clothing," according to the Major Offense Report. "The subject showed the suspect a gun and demanded the victim wallet and cellphone."

Investigators say the victim complied and the suspect fled.
