A woman walking on a Broadmoor street Monday morning was pushed to the ground and kicked by three men who were trying to take her purse, New Orleans police said.
The woman was walking in the 3700 block of South Roman Street (near Delachaise Street) around 7:50 a.m. Monday (June 30) when she saw three men emerge from the side yard of an apparently abandoned home, according to a NOPD report.
“One of the subjects demanded her purse; however, she refused,” the report states. “The subject attempted to strike her with his fist but was unsuccessful. The remaining two subjects pushed her to the ground and they all began kicking her about her body. All three subjects then fled on foot.”
The suspect who demanded her purse was described as a thin, 5-foot-9 black man with a noticeable tattoo of a red star under his left eye, the report states. Another suspect had a similar build and appeared to have a large burn mark on the top of his hand, the report states.
Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call the NOPD Second District station at 658-6020 to speak to a detective or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.In an unrelated case, Second District police identified and arrested a woman wanted in connection with a stabbing in Hollygrove over the weekend. After a woman stabbed a man in the neck in the 2600 block of Eagle Street on Saturday, police identified her as Tequilla Dozier, 36, according to a NOPD report. Dozier was found at a home on Baudin Street in Mid-City and arrested on a charge of aggravated battery, the report states.
