Overnight Crime Report: Two Rapes, Home Invasion


The recent spate of shootings paused in the last 24 hours but the crime did not according to the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD). Two rapes and a home invasion were reported in the Major Offense Log (MOL).

 

Two rapes were included in the MOL. At 7:52p.m., detectives took the report of two juvenile girls who were allegedly sexually assaulted by a juvenile boy on the 7100 block of Salem Street. At 3:35a.m., a 54-year-old woman reported being sexually assaulted by a known man on the 1300 block of St. Maurice Street. As is the case with sexual assaults, details were sparse in order to protect the victims and comply with Shield laws.

 

The NOPD explained that two men and a woman forced their way into a 20-year-old’s home on the 1400 block of Lauradale Street. Police said that the intruders “ransacked the house and stole several items.”

 

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.
