A man took a luxury car at gunpoint just off South Claiborne Avenue on Saturday afternoon, police said.

A 38-year-old man walked out of a business in the 3000 block of Third Street a few minutes after noon on Saturday to see someone trying to get into a black Infiniti M35, according to the initial police report. He asked the man what he was doing, and the suspect pulled a black handgun, told the man not to get any closer, and then drove off in the vehicle, the report states.

Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers at 822-1111.

In an unrelated incident nearby that night, a 46-year-old man and four women people were all cut in a fight that took place at South Claiborne and Washington at 2:30 a.m. Sunday. The women’s ages were 20, 29, 41 and 47.

    let me get this straight: you think it is important to publish the age of the victim, but you don’t give a physical description of the perp so we can watch out for him? I’ll bet the NOPD would have cheerfully given you the description if you had only asked……why didn’t you? We deserve to know just exactly who is involved in this crime wave uptown so we can avoid them and protect ourselves and our families. A little help from the media would be appreciated.

    I wonder if the person who walked out and saw someone getting into the car was the owner of the car? The way this is written, the reporting person may have simply seen a man entering his own car. Very poor report.
