Four more people were robbed in New Orleans Saturday into early Sunday, one of them inside her home, police said.
Just after 4 p.m. Saturday, a 23-year-old woman was asleep when a former roommate and two other women entered her home in the 14000 block of Chef Menteur Highway, according to a New Orleans Police Department preliminary offense log. The three women allegedly jumped on the victim and fled with $140, a purse and a small TV.
Later, around 10:40 p.m., a 24-year-old woman was sitting inside her vehicle in the 1100 block of Music Street when she was approached by a man with a semi-automatic weapon, NOPD said. The man allegedly put the gun to the victim’s face and demanded her car keys. She complied, and the suspect fled in her vehicle.
Finally, around 1:10 a.m. Sunday, a 28-year-old man and a 28-year old woman were approached by two men in the 1200 block of Esplanade Avenue, NOPD said. One suspect was allegedly armed with a handgun and demanded cash. The suspects made the two victims go inside their home, and four cell phones were taken, NOPD said.
The incidences follow six separate armed robberies that occurred in a 15-hour span on Friday and Saturday.
