Overnight Crime Report: 2 Suicides, 2 Unclassified Deaths, 2 Simple Robberies, 2 Armed Robberies, Attempted Rape, 3 Shootings

The New Orleans Police Department saw twelve crimes hit the city on Wednesday (7.12). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to two suicides, two unclassified deaths, two simple robberies, two armed robberies, attempted rape, and three shootings.   


At 5:36AM, police were called to attend to a 26-year-old man on the eve of his birthday who reportedly was on top of a billboard on the 3900 block of Dublin St. As officers arrived, they saw the man jump. EMS transported the man to a nearby hospital, where he died a short time later. 


At 6:42AM, a 62-year-old man went to the 7th floor of a parking garage on the 200 block of La Salle St. He laid down on the ground and rolled over, falling to the ground level. He later died at a nearby hospital. 


On the 2100 block of St. Charles Ave., a 97-year-old man was found in a bathtub filled with water at 10:22AM. He was pronounced on scene by EMS, though NOPD is treating it as an unclassified death. 


At 1:42PM, a 4-month-old female was found unresponsive on the 5700 block of Tullis Dr. No trauma was reported, but the infant was pronounced at a local hospital by EMS. 


At 2:20PM, a 73-year-old man was on the elevator with a woman and man carrying a 10-month-old baby on the 600 block of St. Louis St. According to the MOL, when the elevator arrived on the 6th floor, the woman stepped into the doorway, preventing an exit from the elevator. The man then “pretended he had health issues,” at which time he pinned the victim against the wall and stole his wallet. The perp then returned the wallet to the front desk minus $400. 


On the 1600 block of Elysian Fields Ave., a 65-year-old man withdrew $40 from the ATM at 6:07PM, and shortly thereafter was approached by a man who snatched the money from his hand and fled in a black pickup truck. 


At the intersection of Mirabeau and Franklin Ave., a 19-year-old man was walking by the bus stop at 10:43PM when an unknown armed man approached. The subject took the teen’s bag, containing a cell phone, PS4, wallet, and keys. 


An 85-year-old man was outside of his house on the 800 block of Governor Nicholls putting a sign on his mailbox when he was approached by an unknown armed subject at 10:56PM. The subject demanded his wallet, at which time another male subject approached from behind and grabbed his wallet out of his rear right pocket. The subjects then fled northbound. 


At 11:18PM, an unknown male attempted to rape a known female on the 1000 block of Toulouse St. 


At 12:12AM, a 44-year-old man was traveling south on the 3900 block of Ford St. when he heard gunshots. He sustained one gunshot wound and was brought to a local hospital for treatment. His current condition is unknown. 


At the intersection of Gentilly Blvd. and Baccich at 12:54AM, a 20-year-old man was approached from behind by an unknown male who pointed a gun at him. When the victim ran, the subject shot at him. The 20-year-old returned fire, but was shot twice. His current condition is unknown. 


NOPD officers arrived on the 2700 block of Verbena St. at 12:54AM to find a 17-year-old male lying on his front porch suffering from a gunshot wound. He was brought to a nearby hospital for treatment. His current condition is unknown.

You could receive a cash reward of up to $2,500 for the information leading only to the arrest, except on homicides, where Crimestoppers will pay half of the reward upon the arrest and half on the indictment of the responsible person(s). You do not have to give your name nor testify to receive the reward but you must contact Crimestoppers directly with your information.
