Around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, a man and a woman both in their 40s were leaving a restaurant near Danneel and Soniat streets when two men confronted them demanding money, according to the initial police report. The victims handed over cash and a purse, and the robbers fired shots into the air before leaving, the report states.
Around 10:45 p.m. the same evening, a woman in her 20s was approached near St. Andrew and Prytania by an armed man demanding her money, so she threw her purse at him and ran off, according to the initial police report.
A third armed robbery was reported at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Second and Chippewa in the Irish Channel, but no report has been released on that case.
