Overnight Crime Report: Two Armed Robberies, Two Unclassified Deaths

The New Orleans Police Department responded to two armed robberies, a dead cruise ship passenger, and a mysterious body washing ashore in the last 24 hours, according to the Major Offense Log (MOL.) 


Harbor Police discovered a body washed up along the shore at 7:33AM. The MOL recorded no additional details about the unknown male victim. 


A 69-year-old cruise ship passenger was found unresponsive in his cabin at 7:56AM, according to police. 


The NOPD reported that at 5:15PM, three male perps approached a 17-year-old man walking on the 600 block of N. Rocheblave Street. One of the perps held a gun to the victim and demanded he hand over his wallet. After they were given cash, they fled the scene according to the MOL. 


One man got more than he bargained for at Julian Discount on the 4500 block of Woodland Drive. Detectives state that at around 11:21PM, a group of five men surrounded a 50-year-old man and asked for spare change. When the victim reached for his wallet, a gun was put to his head before the group demanded all of his money. A physical altercation ensued, ending in the victim being shot. The victim was able to flee to a nearby residence, before being transported to a local hospital.
