Shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday, a man in his 30s and a woman in her 20s were near Washington Avenue and Prytania when a man with a gun confronted them, the report in that case states.

“The male demanded the victims’ property and for them to run,” the report states. “The victims complied and the male fled the location.”

Shortly after 6 p.m. Friday, a man and a woman both in their 30s were walking in the 1000 block of Jena Street when someone accosted them from behind, according to the report in that case.
