Four people — two of whom were armed — barged into a Pine Street home Monday afternoon and robbed the resident there at gunpoint, New Orleans police said.

The victim, a 20-year-old man, was at home in the 900 block of Pine Street (between Burthe and Freret streets) shortly after 3 p.m. Monday, March 3, when the four intruders came in through a back door, according to the initial NOPD report.

“The armed subjects pointed their weapons at the victim and demanded property from the residence,” the report states. “The victim complied and the subjects fled the location.”

Further details were not immediately available. Anyone with information 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.

    Since there is no Monday, March 3 in 2017, don’t you mean Monday, April 3?

    Hi, Robert, is there any update on this story? Thanks.

      So far I am hearing that it may not have been a random attack, but this is just speculation at this point. It will probably be early next week before I can get any additional information on the record.
