Overnight Crime Report: Three Stabbings, Three Simple Robberies, Rape, Carjacking, Armed Robbery


The New Orleans Police Department saw nine crimes hit the city on Sunday (8.6). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to three stabbings, three simple robberies, rape, carjacking, and an armed robbery. 

 

A 24-year-old man was walking on the 4900 block of N. Rampart when an unknown armed man stabbed him at 1:02PM. EMS transported him to the hospital. His current condition is unknown. 

 

At 1:59PM, a 35-year-old man was cooking for a friend at a residence on the 6000 block of Chef Menteur Hwy. when an unknown man entered the location. The intruder demanded the man’s backpack, and the man refused. An altercation ensued, at which time the intruder stabbed the man once and the man fled the apartment and collapsed. EMS transported him to the hospital. His current condition is unknown. 

 

At 3:33PM, a 32-year-old man arrived to the 6100 block of Tullis Dr. to purchase a cell phone. During the exchange, he took money out of his wallet to pay the agreed upon price and began deleting the seller’s personal information from the phone. The seller reached into the man’s window, stole the money and phone from the man, and fled on foot. The victim chased the perp, who then pulled out a weapon and pointed it in the victim’s face. The victim then backed off. 

 

At 7:39PM, a known 30-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by her male friend on the 6700 block of Tara Ln. 

 

A 23-year-old man was at a house party at an unknown location at around 11:56PM. While at the party, an unknown man approached and punched him in the face, stealing $40 from his pocket. The victim made the report at his residence on the 1400 block of Foucher St. 

 

At 1:42AM, an unknown male approached a 50-year-old man as he sat in his red 2003 Chevy Impala (#AYR 367) in the parking lot of the Magnolia Meat Market on the 900 block of N. Broad St. The unknown man pointed a semiautomatic gun at the driver and pulled him out of the car. He then fled, driving down N. Broad, then to St. Philip and unknown. 

 

At the intersection of Iberville St. and Dauphine St., a 23-year-old woman was approached by a young, thin man at 3:53AM. The man pulled out a semiautomatic handgun and demanded her property. The woman complied and handed over her purse, which contained $600 in cash. The perp then fled the scene, running down Dauphine toward Canal. 

 

At 3:38AM, a 20-year-old man was approached by an older man demanding his property on the 7200 block of Downman Rd. A fight ensued, and the perp pulled out a steak knife and cut the victim. He was brought to a nearby hospital and is listed in stable condition. 

 

At 3:56AM, an 18-year-old male was approached by a transgender male who took his wallet and fled the 400 block of Bourbon St.
