A 77-year-old man was held at gunpoint while five intruders raided his Central City home of his valuables Sunday evening, New Orleans police said.

The victim was at home in the 2700 block of South Liberty (about a block from A.L. Davis park at Washington and LaSalle) around 6:45 p.m. Sunday when he answered the doorbell, according to the initial police report. Five men rushed in, forced him onto the sofa and held him there at gunpoint while they searched the home, the report states. They made him open his safe and took money and jewelry from inside it, then left, the report states.

Further details were not immediately available. Anyone with information is urged to call NOPD Sixth District detectives at 658-6060 or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111.

  1. apparently, midnight basketball just isn’t working…..

  2. How do you get five people, not two, not three, but five people TO AGREE to overcome and rob a 77 year old man?

  3. I would like to hear something from our mayor … or his five or six or however many deputy mayors. The figures for crime may be down but the baddies are still running rampant out there.

  4. Why do they call these intruders “men”? There is nothing manly about what they did.
