NOPD Identifies Tyrell Brown as Suspect in Two Armed Robberies

The NOPD has identified Tyrell Brown as a suspect in two recent armed robberies in the Seventh District. 


On October 15, 2016, the victim reported that two unknown black males approached him while he sat inside his gray Mustang in front of a store at the intersection of Alcee Fortier and Chef Menteur Highway. The unknown males, one of them armed with a handgun, demanded his vehicle. The victim complied and the two males fled down Alcee Fortier in his car.


The second robbery occurred on November 1, 2016, at about 10:50 p.m. in front of a restaurant in the 4600 block of Alcee Fortier Boulevard. The victim reported that she exited her vehicle and was walking to the front door of the restaurant when an unknown black male came up behind her and put a small semi-automatic pistol in her back. The perpetrator demanded her money, cell phone and vehicle. The victim complied and the suspect fled westbound on Chef Menteur highway in her black Cadillac ATC.


Through investigation of these two incidents, Brown was identified as a suspect in both armed robberies.

Armed Robbery

In Louisiana, an armed robbery conviction requires the offender to be imprisoned at hard labor for 10 – 99 years, without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence. When a firearm is used in the commission of the crime, the offender will be imprisoned for an additional 5 years that will be served consecutively to the original sentence.
