Overnight Crime Report

The crime continued on Sunday (9.27) night and Monday (9.28) morning. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) reported two rapes, and armed robbery, and an aggravated battery in their Major Offense Log (MOL).

Four Shootings On Sunday

According to the MOL, at 11p.m. a 23-year-old man was sitting in his car at the intersection of Dwyer Road and Lamb Road when an unknown subject entered his auto, fired off several rounds, and fled.

Suspect Sought in CBD Beatdown

The CBD Brothers Food Market (148 Carondelet Street) is a NoDef favorite for fried chicken. However, on Monday (7.13), the convenience store was the start of a fight that ended in a violent beatdown.

Civil War: Brothers Brawl on America (Street)

America was in crisis on Thursday (6.18). America Street that is. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are searching for a 19-year-old man after he allegedly assaulted his brother.

NOPD: Swarm Stabs Squatters St. Roch School

The St. Roch area has seen some serious crime over the last year, but an incident early Tuesday (5.12) morning is one of the more bizarre cases. A pair of squatters were hospitalized after allegedly being assaulted by a group of 15-20 masked men.

Domestic Defense Results in Justifiable Homicide

An ugly incident Uptown began with alleged domestic violence and ended in death Friday (4.10) night. The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are classifying the death as a justifiable homicide.

Scissor Sisters: Seventh Ward Stabbing

Running with scissors is dangerous. Stabbing with scissors can be even more harmful. In the Seventh Ward, one woman is in jail after she allegedly used the scissors as a weapon instead of for arts and crafts.

Sister Act's High Speed Finale

A case of sisters fighting sisters allegedly sprung up in the East on Monday (3.10). The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) are on it and made a pair of arrests.

Cold Crime

The recent temperature drop has been particularly hard on the homeless. One of NOLA's neediest suffered a particularly Dickensian disaster. He was allegedly beaten and robbed while trying to sleep in the cold by the river on Monday (2.23) night.

A Grand Theft at the GameStop

Some people can't fathom the concept of Christmas shopping, in which you pay for what you take. The NOPD are searching for two thieves who sucumbed to the stress of buying the perfect gift when they robbed a local GameStop instead.
