Three college students waiting for the Tulane University shuttle at the intersection of Oak and Adams streets in Carrollton were robbed at gunpoint about 12:40 a.m. Tuesday, police said.
The robber held a black handgun at his side, demanded their money and threatened to shoot them, then left on foot down Adams Street with about $25 of their cash, police said. He is described as a 6-foot-tall, 180-pound black man with a gold tooth wearing a dark grey or black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
A number of officers were on the scene very quickly after the robbery was reported, and the suspect was nowhere to be found, said Second District officer Brandon Singleton, which suggests he may live very close to the robbery scene.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Second District detectives at 658-6020 or, to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward, call CrimeStoppers at 822-1111.
