A store owner in the Third Ward hopes surveillance video will lead to the arrest of the three men who robbed his store.

Omar says a man entered the store last week pretending to be a customer when he took out a gun and threatened the clerk. The worker had his hands tied behind his back and his mouth shut with duct tape.

The suspect took all the money from the cash register. Omar says the robber then called his two friends, who brought a van, and the three suspects loaded beer and cigarettes into the vehicle.

"I just believe that this guy should be detained and took off the streets," Omar said.

He says he believes the suspects live in the neighborhood.
