A woman on a bicycle was punched in the face and robbed of her purse at gunpoint shortly after midnight Tuesday, police said.

The woman was at the corner of Aline and Laurel streets at 12:44 a.m. when she was cut off by a grey or silver four-door vehicle, according to an email from New Orleans Police Department Maj. Bruce Little. A man got out of the back seat with a black semiautomatic handgun, punched her in the face, took her purse, then raced away eastward on Laurel.
