NOPD Seeking Suspect in Eighth District Stabbing

The NOPD is seeking to locate a suspect in the investigation of an aggravated battery by cutting on April 24, 2021 in the 700 block of Toulouse Street.

At about 8:50 p.m., the pictured subject – a street performer in the Eighth District known to wear a costume of the Star Wars character Chewbacca  – reportedly stabbed the victim with a knife after a verbal disagreement. The subject’s actual identity is unknown. However, a witness stated that the subject’s costume head came off during the altercation and revealed the suspect to be a black male, possibly in his 20s.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact NOPD Eighth District detectives at 504-658-6080 or call anonymously to Crimestoppers of Greater New Orleans at 504-822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.
