A woman parked on Maple Street just before 9 a.m. Friday was pulled from her seat by two men who then stole her vehicle, police said.
The woman was in the 7300 block of Maple at 8:50 a.m., sitting her vehicle with the doors closed and the engine off, when she saw two men on foot turn on to the street from Lowerline, according to a report distributed by the Tulane University Police Department. One of the men ran over to her driver’s side door, pulled it open and then pulled her out of the vehicle onto the ground, the report states. Both men then got into the vehicle and headed up Lowerline toward South Claiborne, the report states.
The woman’s assailant was described as a black man wearing a brown fur hat with a bear on the front, a white T-shirt and blue jeans. His accomplice was a black man in a gray Nike hooded sweatshirt with blue jeans.
