A woman was carjacked at gunpoint early Monday morning in the Irish Channel, New Orleans police said, and a man was cut with a knife by two robbers in Central City late last week.

In the carjacking, a woman in her 40s was sitting with a friend in her SUV on Sixth Street near Annunciation shortly after 12 a.m. Monday when two men walked by, according to the initial police report. The victim and her friend got out of the SUV, and the two men pointed a handgun at them and said, “Give us the f’n keys; shoot the mf’s,” according to the police report.

The victim threw the keys on the ground, and their attackers drove off in it, the report states. The SUV is described as a blue 2002 Toyota Highlander with license plate TJA159.

In the cutting case, a man in his 40s was walking near Felicity Street and Simon Bolivar Avenue in Central City around 9:45 p.m. Thursday when two men approached him, and a struggle ensued, the initial report states. One of the attackers had a knife, and the victim was cut on his chest, the report states. The suspects then took cash out of the victim’s pocket and left, the report states.

The man’s condition after the attack was not specified. The report in the case was not made until late the following morning.
