An attempted wallet snatching on Dec. 6 turned into a simple robbery on Dauphine Street, the New Orleans Police Department said, with the suspects leaving the scene in a Chevrolet pickup truck with front end damage.

The NOPD said the incident occurred at approximately 6:55 a.m. in the 600 block of Dauphine St. when a female suspect approached the male victim and attempted to take the victim’s wallet.

The man pushed the suspect away, the NOPD said, at which time a male suspect approached and pinned the victim near the truck so the female suspect could take the victim’s wallet.

The female suspect took the victim’s wallet and then drove away, along with her partner, in the pickup truck down Dauphine Street, the NOPD said.

The female suspect is described as white, standing about five foot eight inches tall with long black hair, approximately 40 years old and wearing black and white tights.

The NOPD described the male suspect as “brown-skinned” with medium build and a bald head, clad in a dark green jacket and wearing a plaid shirt and jeans.

The NOPD released a surveillance photo of the alleged suspects and their truck on Dec. 12.
