A woman was robbed at gunpoint by a man who then demanded she let him into her Bordeaux Street home to steal additional items, police said.
The woman was arriving home from work and getting out of her car in the 1200 block of Bordeaux just before 1 a.m. Tuesday when she was approached by a man with a handgun pointed at her, said Detective Jerry Baldwin of the NOPD Second District persons-crimes division. He told her to give him “everything,” so she handed over an iPad, phone and purse, Baldwin said.
The gunman then asked if they were in front of her home and demanded to be let inside, where he took her flat-screen TV before running off, Baldwin said. He did not harm the woman, Baldwin said.
The teen was described as a young black male in his late teens or early 20s, with a slim build and short twists in his hair, Baldwin said.
The incident was the second Uptown robbery in about 12 hours, after a woman on Willow Street was robbed of her car Monday afternoon. Whether the two incidents are connected is under investigation, Baldwin said.
