Overnight Crime Report: Three Armed Robberies, Two Rapes, Two Simple Robberies, Three Shootings, Stabbing, Burglary


The New Orleans Police Department saw twelve crimes hit the city on Saturday (6.17). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to three armed robberies, two rapes, two simple robberies, three shootings, stabbing, burglary. 

 

At the intersection of S. Claiborne Ave. and Toledano St., a perp approached a 57-year-old woman at 10:49AM. Armed with a knife, he demanded what she had under her shirt, according to the report. The woman took $10 from her bra and gave it to the subject. 

 

At 2:30PM, a man was approached about a bicycle he purchased earlier that day at the intersection of Willow St. and Jena St. Another man on a bike approached and accused him of stealing the bike. The subject began arguing and pulled out a box cutter, stabbing the victim. He got off the bike, and the perp then stole the bike and fled. 

 

At 4:50PM, a juvenile female was sexually assaulted by a known man on the 300 block of St. Joseph St. 

 

At 5:26PM, a 45-year-old man reported being sexually assaulted at the age of four on the 600 block of N. Galvez St. 

 

A 54-year-old woman was approached by five juvenile males on bicycles on the 1000 block of St. Charles Ave. at 6:46PM. One of the boys grabbed her purse and sweater, before fleeing the scene. 

 

At 8:33PM, a 32-year-old man was in his car at the intersection of Dale and Warfield when shots rang out, with the man sustaining a gunshot wound. He was brought to New Orleans East Hospital, but his current condition is unknown. 

 

Two 20-year-old women were approached by a man who demanded their purses at 10:55PM at the intersection of I-10 W and S. Jefferson Davis. They threw their bags to the ground and ran off. 

 

At 12:16AM, a 47-year-old man was involved in a verbal altercation with a homeless man at the intersection of S. Claiborne Ave. and Palmyra St. The subject pulled out a machete and hit the 47-year-old before fleeing. The victim’s current condition is unknown. 

 

At the intersection of Airline Hwy. and Palmetto St., a car pulled up next to a vehicle containing a 24-year-old man and 23-year-old male acquaintance at 12:55AM. The car opened fire, striking both of the victims. They were brought to a nearby hospital, where they are believed to be in stable condition. 

 

A 47-year-old man got into a physical altercation with an unknown subject on the 5100 block of St. Claude at 2:13AM. At some point in the fight, shots were fired and the man realized he had been struck. He was brought to a nearby hospital for treatment. His current condition is unknown. 

 

A 49-year-old man, a 16-year-old male, a 26-year-old man, a 40-year-old man, and a 13-year-old male were victim of a burglary at 2:54AM at their residence on the 2700 block of S. Claiborne. The 40-year-old man answered a knock at their back door, at which time an armed “tall heavy set” woman forced inside, and demanded he show her around the house while she searched for money. The 49-year-old man and 26-year-old man fled out the front door and called the police from a nearby gas station. The woman reportedly left without taking any property. 

 

At 5:04AM, 24-year-old Shankia Walls was victim to a robbery on the 8500 block of Nelson. A man on a bike approached her and pushed her down, punching her several times and stealing her purse before fleeing.
