A few blocks over in the Quarter, a celebration turned ugly when a woman was stabbed with a wine bottle. At UNO, a man was robbed while returning to his on-campus apartment.

On Sunday, another iPhone snatching upended a man's night, as well as some quality Face Time. About 5:30 p.m., the man was walking in the 400 block of Bourbon Street while getting in some video chatting with a friend. A teen then walked up behind the man and tried to take the iPhone. Moments later, another teen with long braids punched the man in the head. The first teen the took the man's phone, and both fled up Bourbon St. toward Conti, then went on Conti toward the River.

About 9:30 p.m. Sunday a man was hanging Christmas lights on his house in the 5400 block of Pratt Dr., when he was approached by three men wearing black hooded sweatshirts, bandanas and armed with handguns. The trio told the man to get off his ladder, and forced him into the house. The men then tied the man's wrists together, and searched his house.
