The victim, a 30-year-old woman, was in the 3200 block of Canal Street (near South Lopez) shortly before 11 p.m. when she was confronted by a man “who implied a gun at his waistband,” according to the initial NOPD report.
“The subject demanded the victim’s purse, wallet and iPhone,” the report states. “The victim complied and the subject fled in unknown direction.”
