The NOPD is seeking to locate and identify two suspects in the investigation of an armed carjacking that occurred on September 12, 2020 in the 100 block of West Harrison Avenue.

At about 10:30 a.m., the pictured unknown black male and unknown black female reportedly approached the victim, who was inside of her vehicle in the rear parking lot of a business. The male subject allegedly produced a handgun, pointed it at the victim and demanded the victim exit the vehicle – described as a silver 2020 Nissan Murano with Florida license plate IELD22. As the victim complied and exited the vehicle, the female subject reportedly threatened that the victim would be shot if she did not comply. The victim fled the scene on foot, throwing the vehicle keys behind her.

Surveillance video in this investigation (shown in above player) shows the reported suspects in the 200 block of W. Harrison Avenue just prior to the incident taking place.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact NOPD Third District detectives at 504-658-6030 or call anonymously to Crimestoppers of Greater New Orleans at 504-822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.
