Three different crimes within three hours of one another left victims without their vehicles, according to New Orleans police.
About 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, three men who had parked their car in the 1500 block of Iberville Street were approached by three unknown males. One of the unknown men had a gun and demanded the victims’ property and car keys. All three victims complied, and the robbers fled in the vehicle.
Another carjacking took place about 12:30 a.m. Thursday in the 1000 block of North White Street. A 47-year-old man was approached by an unknown male with a gun who demanded the victim’s car. The victim complied, and the perpetrator fled with the vehicle.
About 1:15 a.m., a 56-year-old man pulled up to his residence in the 100 block of David Street when two unknown men emerged from the rear of his house.
The robbers followed the victim inside his house, sprayed him with tear gas, tied him up and ransacked his house, police said. They then fled the site in the victim’s vehicle.
