Three different crimes, within just miles of each other, left victims without their vehicles overnight Wednesday, according to a New Orleans Police Department press release.
Around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night 3 men, parked in a car at 1500 Iberville St., were approached by three unknown males. One of the unknown men was armed with a gun and demanded the victim's property and car keys. All three men inside the car complied and the perpetrators fled in the vehicle.
Another incident took place around 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning at 1000 N. White St. when a man was approached by an unknown male armed with a gun, demanding the victims car. The 47-year-old victim complied and the perpetrator fled with the vehicle.
A 56-year-old man pulled up to his residence in the 100 block of David St. when two unknown males emerged from the back of the victim's house.
The perpetrators followed the victim inside of his house, maced him, tied him up with shoe laces then ransacked his house, the press release says. They then fled the site in the victim's vehicle.
