Overnight Crime Report: Seven Armed Robberies, a Shooting, and a Rape.


The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) had a busy day on Thursday (11.17).  The Major Offense Log (MOL) reported seven Armed Robberies, a shooting, and a rape.

 

The MOL stated that a 37-year-old woman reported being raped by a 43-year-old man on the 3300 block of Garden Oaks at 5:34p.m.

 

Police said that at 4p.m. two male perps in a white Buick pulled up to a 35-year-old man standing on the side of the 1000 block of L.B. Landry and shot him. The victim was listed in stable condition.
At 5:43p.m., an unknown man man allegedly walked into the mechanic yard on the 4600 block of Earhart Blvd, pulled out a black revolver, and forced the occupant to hand over cash before running off down Earhart.

 

One man wanted something more than a Big Buford from the Rally’s on the 2200 block of S. Claiborne Ave. The NOPD said that around 1:45p.m., an unknown man walked up to the order window, pulled up his shirt to expose a gun in his waistband, and then demanded money. After he was given cash, he ran off down Jackson Ave towards S. Derbigny St. according to the PIO.

 

At 7:12p.m., a 30-year-old employee at It’s Fashion on the 2800 block of S. Claiborne Ave. was forced to hand over the contents of the register to a man who implied he was packing a firearm logged the police.

 

The MOL reported that the Diamond Beauty Supply Store Employee on the 2100 block of S. Claiborne was the victim of an attempted Armed Robbery at 7:05p.m. An NOPD spokesperson said that a man walked into the business demanding cash and implying that he was carrying a gun, but one employee locked the register and hit the panic button while a second employee called 911. When the perp realized the gig was up, he ran off according to police. Authorities have not commented as to whether the Claiborne crimes were linked.

 

At 7:20p.m., two men were driving down the 7800 block of Butterfield Rd. when the driver pulled over to speak with an unknown male pedestrian reported the NOPD. The MOL explained that the menthe got into the backseat of the car, pulled out a gun, and stole two cell phones and a bank card.

 

At 10:37p.m., two men, faces covered by black shirts, allegedly robbed a 26-year-old man at gunpoint on the 8700 block of Hammond. Cash and a cellphone were reported stolen.

 

At 12:49a.m., a 41-year-old woman and 26-year-old woman were standing by their car on the 1100 block of Spain St. noted the Log. Authorities said that two men approached the duo, stole money form the car as well as one of the women’s purses before taking off down Marais on foot.
