CARJACKING INVESTIGATION

Sunday, July 27, 2014 09:11 PM

On July 26, 2014, around 9:41 PM, our officers were dispatched to a reported carjacking in the 600 block of Bonnabel Blvd. in Metairie. Upon arrival, officers met with a 39 year-old female from Metairie, who advised that she and her 14 year-old daughter were traveling south in the 600 block of Bonnabel Blvd. when two black males jumped in front of their vehicle asking for assistance. The victim stated she pulled behind a green Ford Explorer which was occupied by two additional black male subjects. Within moments, the suspect who approached her on the driver's side, described as a B/M, with tattoos, wearing a black Saints shirt produced a semi-auto handgun and ordered she and her daughter out of their 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt, black in color, bearing LA license WTM308. The victim told investigators the suspect who approached her daughter's side of the vehicle, described as a B/M, with short dreads, was armed with a semi-auto rifle.

Once both victims were out of their vehicle, they were ordered to the ground. It was then, the victims claimed, the two armed suspects were joined by the other two B/M's, unknown description, who were in the Explorer. The victim told investigators the suspects backed-up her vehicle towards I-10 and sped away. The Explorer that was left behind by the suspects was towed for further processing. It was not reported stolen.

Anyone with information in this matter is asked to contact our Investigations Bureau at 504-364-5300 or CRIMESTOPPERS.
