A man was wounded in a shooting on Josephine Street and a woman was attacked and robbed of her cash on St. Charles Avenue overnight, New Orleans police said in Wednesday morning crime reports.
A man in his 20s with multiple gunshot wounds showed up at a local hospital around 10 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 6), according to the initial reports.

Shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday, a woman in her early 40s was in the 1800 block of St. Charles Avenue (near Felicity Street) when a stranger grabbed her by the shirt, the report in that case states.
