NOPD Arrests Juvenile Suspects in Investigation of Robbery Incidents

The NOPD has arrested three juvenile suspects in the ongoing investigation of an armed robbery and two attempted armed robbery incidents that occurred on April 19, 2023.

The NOPD was alerted to the following incidents that occurred on April 19:

  • An armed robbery with a gun incident in the 1100 block of City Park Avenue, in the Third Distric
  • An attempted armed robbery in the 1300 block of Octavia Street, in the Second District.
  • An attempted armed robbery on April 19 in the 4200 block of Carondelet Street, in the Sixth District.

As investigation into the incidents progressed, detectives positively determined the incidents to be connected.

Later in the day on April 19, members of the NOPD’s Violent Crime Abatement Investigative Team and officers from the Second, Third and Sixth Districts located a vehicle in the Third District matching the description of the suspect vehicle in each of the incidents. Shortly thereafter, officers located and arrested three subjects seen exiting the suspect vehicle, a 17-year-old juvenile black male and two 16-year-old juvenile black males. Two of the subjects were found to be armed with firearms.

Two of the arrested subjects were booked on charges of illegal possession of a firearm by a juvenile, while all three suspects were booked with resisting an officer. Additional charges are expected as the investigation progresses.

Investigation into these incidents remains active and ongoing, as well as determination if any additional incidents may be related. No additional information is currently available.

Anyone with information that can assist in these investigations is urged to contact NOPD Third District detectives at 504-658-6030, NOPD Second District detectives at 504-658-6020 or NOPD Sixth District detectives at 504-658-6060.
