Overnight Crime Report: Stabbing, Armed Robbery, Unclassified Death


Turns out those security checkpoints did not yield many results at all. The New Orleans Police Department saw just three crimes hit the city overnight, starting Thursday (4.20). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to a stabbing, an armed robbery, and an unclassified death. 

 

At 6:24AM, a 90-year-old woman was found lying in her bed on the 1500 block of Killdeer St. by a family member. She was pronounced dead on scene by EMS. Officers did not state a suspected cause of death.

 

Second Platoon detective were called to the 8500 block of N. I-10 Service Rd. on a charge of aggravated battery. At around 3:35PM, a 25-year-old woman was dropping off a subject and her son at home. The subject walked to the driver's side and asked the woman to roll down the window, after which the subject began striking the victim and stabbed the 25-year-old with a folding knife. NOPD officers did not announce the circumstances that led up to the stabbing, nor did the MOL record the victim's current condition. 

 

Early Friday, on the 800 block of St. Louis, a 30-year-old man was approached by an unknown man at 4:27AM, who pulled a gun on the victim after he refused to hand over his wallet, cell phone, and watch. The perp then physically searched the victim's pockets, before stealing his wallet and fleeing the scene. 

 

Readers with information that can help solve a crime are asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP. 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. Citizens can also submit an anonymous tip online to Crimestoppers at www.crimestoppersgno.org.
