The woman got out of her vehicle in the 1800 block of Baronne shortly after 8:15 p.m. Saturday, and a man hit her in the head with a gun, according to the initial police report. She fell to the ground, and the man kicked her, took her keys and left, the report states.
No further details were immediately available. Anyone with information is urged to call the NOPD Sixth District at 658-6060 or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111.
