Similar Pairs of Robberies in French Quarter, Marigny-Bywater Leave 1 Shot


Though New Years celebrations did not appear to feature any violent gunfire in crowded areas, the first weekend of 2012 was not entirely without incident. Two separate pairs of robberies were reported in the CBD and Marigny-Bywater between Saturday and Sunday. In one of the Bywater incidents, a man suffered a graze gunshot wound to the head, according to NOPD reports. Click through for details.

 

The Marigny-Bywater incidents occurred less than ten minutes apart early Monday morning. In both, victims were approached by a pair of armed assailants, who demanded money and fled the scene. Around 12:45 a.m. near the corner of N. Rampart and Gallier Sts., a 26-year-old man was walking when two men jumped out of a vehicle with a handgun demanding money. The duo took the man's wallet and backpack. At some point during the altercation, the gun went off and grazed the man in the back of the head.

 

The shooting came 15 minutes after a similar incident occurred near the corner of Port and Burgundy Sts. In that incident, two men were walking when they were approached by a pair of men who produced a gun and demanded money. The men made off with a wallet and cell phone.

 

In the CBD cluster, two Saturday morning robberies involved people entering a silver SUV at the behest of a white female, then getting robbed by nearby assailants.

 

Around midnight, a 54-year-old man was walking on Bourbon St. when the woman approached and offered the man a ride to his hotel. The man got into the car and began chatting with the woman. Later, two black males who were hiding in the back seat of the car demanded money. One of the robbers began choking the man while the other pointed a gun at him. The man complied with the demands for money, and the robbers then hit him in the head and let him out of the vehicle in the 300 block of Julia Street.

 

Around 12:35 a.m., a 50-year-old man was walking home from work in the French Quarter near the corner of Royal and Dumaine Streets when the vehicle apporached. The man got in and began talking to the woman. Just like the other incident, two men were hiding in the back seat, said they had guns, and demanded money. After taking the man's cash, they let him out of the car in the 100 block of St. Charles Ave.

 

In Mid-City over the weekend, a Friday night robbery was reported just after 10 p.m. near the corner of N. Lopez and Bienville. Two young women had their purses and shopping bags stolen. A New Years Eve armed robbery were also reported in the 1700 block of S. Carrollton, and a New Years Day mugging was reported at the corner of S. Jefferson Davis Pkwy. and Banks Street.

 

Uptown, a 23-year-old woman was robbed in the 500 block of Austerlitz when a gun-toting man approached and demanded her purse while she was knocking at her front door.

To the above poster - the claim was made that no PEOPLE were hit or hurt by falling bullets. Yes, bullets fell, but no one was reported hurt by them.

And the story they had on the news.....NOPD said there were no reports of falling bullets is a lie too. I called NOPD at 10:13pm New Year's Eve after a bullet punched a hole the overhang gutter outside the window where I was sitting while watching tv. I found the slug in the alley the next morning. So I know one call was made about falling bullets.
