After the Broadway Bar was robbed last weekend by a man wielding a sawed-off shotgun, investigators have arrested an alleged accomplice who was out of prison early on a 30-year sentence for a previous armed robbery charge, authorities said.

Around 10:15 a.m. Friday (April 5), the owner of the Broadway Bar in the 3000 block of Broadway was preparing to open the business when a man came in with a sawed-off shotgun and made him get down on the floor, NOPD Sgt. Ernie Crayton reported Wednesday at the weekly meeting of Second District leadership. The gunman then robbed the business of $1,000 in cash and left, Crayton said.
