An employee at Bud’s Broiler
(500 City Park Ave., (504) 486-2559) was robbed at gunpoint and forced into a cooler early Tuesday morning, police said.
A preliminary report from the NOPD said an armed woman entered the City Park Avenue burger joint shortly after 2 a.m. and forced an employee “into the cooler area,” at gunpoint. The suspect then went into the restaurant’s office, took several bags of cash and locked the employee inside the cooler before fleeing the scene.
It wasn't immediately clear whether there were any diners present during the holdup. Police haven’t released anything further about the incident
It’s not the first time the popular 24-hour burger spot was targeted. In 2015, surveillance camera footage showed employees at the restaurant fighting off and capturing a gunman in an attempted armed robbery.
