The man answered a knock at the door of a home in the 3200 block of Louisiana Avenue Parkway (near South Roman Street) around 1:15 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, and “two unknown males rushed in,” according to the initial NOPD report.
One of the intruders, wielding two guns, forced the man to the floor at gunpoint while pointing the second gun at the 14-year-old boy, the report states. The other intruder, also armed with a gun, forced the woman into the bedroom “where she gave the subject a shoe box containing cash,” the report states. Both intruders then left the house.
Further details were not immediately available. Anyone with information is urged to call the NOPD Sixth District station at 658-6060 to speak to a detective, or CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
