The New Orleans Police Department reported two armed robberies on Saturday.

The first incident happened about 10:45 a.m. in New Orleans East, police said, when a 55-year-old man received a ride home from another man who goes by the name of "Raymond."

The two had arrived to the house in the 10100 block of Curran Avenue when the subject demanded the victim give him money, NOPD said.

When the victim refused he went through the victims pockets and took some cash anyway before fleeing, according to police.

Then, shortly after 6:30 p.m., a man robbed a Discount Zone store in Algiers, police said.

NOPD said the man entered the store in the 4600 block of General De Gaulle Drive with a gun, demanded money and fled with $400 in cash after the employee complied.

Police also reported an attempted robbery and a simple robbery on Saturday.

The attempt happened about 11:15 a.m. on North Broad and Allen streets when a 19 year old was walking down the street and a man began following him, police said.

NOPD said the subject passed up the teen then he turned around and approached him, demanded his property. He fled after the victim advised he didn’t have anything and called for the police.

The simple robbery happened about 12:40 p.m. in the 4000 block of Iroquois Street in Gentilly Terrace when a 70-year-old woman was entering her gate, police said.

The woman turned to go inside the gate when she was attacked from behind, NOPD said, and the subject took her purse before fleeing.
