The New Orleans Police Department saw four crimes hit the city on Sunday (7.16). According to the Major Offense Log (MOL), the NOPD responded to two armed robberies, an unclassified death, and a stabbing. 


A 36-year-old woman, a 42-year-old man, and 41-year-old woman were approached by an unknown armed man at the intersection of N. Robertson and St. Ann at 5:58AM. The armed subject demanded their belongings, at which time they complied and he fled in a white vehicle. 


At 8:57AM, a 54-year-old man was found inside a bathroom of a residence on the 7300 block of Nelson St. He was unresponsive due to an apparent gunshot wound. He was pronounced on scene by EMS, but the NOPD are treating it as an unclassified death. 


A 53-year-old woman was standing at the intersection of 1st St. and S. Robertson St. when an unknown woman drove up and started an argument with her at 9:35PM. During the altercation, the driver got out of the car and cut the victim with "an unknown object” according to police. She was treated by EMS, and is in stable condition.
