Officers respond to attempted armed robbery on Broadway Street

At approximately 1 a.m. Saturday an attempted armed robbery took place on the 1500 block of Broadway Street.

Two victims sitting in a vehicle were approached by two unknown subjects. The subjects pulled up alongside the victims in a light-colored SUV, armed with handguns, and demanded the property of the victims. One victim stated that they threw their phone in the grass. A non-involved vehicle pulled up behind the subjects’ vehicle at which time the subjects fled without stealing anything, made a U-turn on Birch Street and fled south on Broadway Street. The destination of the subjects remains unknown.

The investigation by the New Orleans Police Department and the Tulane University Police Department is ongoing. If you have any information about these crimes, call TUPD at 504-865-5381 or NOPD at 504-821-2222.
