The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) is seeking assistance in locating the three pictured subjects, who are sought in the investigation of a simple robbery that occurred on May 26, 2019 at the intersection of Dumaine Street and the Mississippi River.

Through investigation, NOPD Eighth District detectives learned that at about 2 a.m, the victim was sitting on bench at the location when the pictured unknown black female allegedly approached and attempted to sell the victim marijuana. The victim said he agreed to the sale and when he attempted to pay the female, she reportedly grabbed the money from his hand and attempted to flee without making the transaction.

The victim then reportedly grabbed the female’s hand in an attempt to stop her, at which time the two pictured unknown black males allegedly approached and physically assaulted the victim. The subjects then reportedly fled the scene on foot heading toward North Peters Street.

Anyone with additional information regarding this incident or the identities and/or whereabouts of the pictured subjects is asked to contact NOPD Eighth District detectives at 504-658-6080, or call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
