NOPD is looking to find a new cell for a Bourbon St. iPhone snatcher who struck Sunday night. About 10 p.m., a woman was taking a picture with her phone in the 500 block of Bourbon St., when the suspect (sketched in photo) approached her from behind.
The man grabbed the woman's phone and purse, and ran away up Bourbon. He was last seen turning on Toulouse St. and heading toward N. Rampart St.
The perp is described as in his mid-20s, with shoulder length braids. He was wearing a white T-shirt, dark pants and black-and-white shoes.
Anyone with information regarding this incident can contact Det. Michael Flores at (504)658-6707 or [email protected] or CrimeStoppers at (504)822-1111.
