UPDATED: Suspect Arrested for Kidnapping in Seventh District

NOPD has located and arrested Michael Jacobs (DOB: 11-18-1981) in connection with a kidnapping in the 14700 block of Chef Menteur Highway.


Our previous story:


The victim reported that on July 31, 2017, at approximately 5 p.m., Jacobs approached him and a witness and punched both of them in the face. Jacobs pointed a firearm at the victim and threatened to kill him, then forced him into his vehicle and drove the victim to a nearby park. Jacobs fled on foot when he saw NOPD units in the area.


Jacobs is wanted for simple kidnapping, false imprisonment while armed with a firearm, aggravated assault, illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and two counts of simple battery.


If you have information about this incident or the whereabouts of Michael Jacobs please any Seventh District detective at 504-658-6070, or call the NOPD non-emergency number at 504-821-2222.
