A student was carjacked on Broadway street early Friday morning.

A student was carjacked at the intersection of Broadway and Birch Streets early Friday morning Tulane University Police said. 

Police said a student parked their vehicle outside their residence, and two armed men in a black Infiniti SUV pulled in close behind. 

The two subjects brandished firearms and demanded money. The student dropped property on the ground and ran inside. One subject fled in the student’s black Honda Accord, and one returned to the Infiniti SUV. 

TUPD identified the two subjects as males around 23 years of age, wearing black hoodies and masks. 

Police responded to the call around 3:33 a.m. Friday. 

The incident is the latest of seven carjackings that have already been reported in New Orleans this year, according to the Metropolitan Crime Commission. It comes as students are returning to Uptown in preparation for the start of classes next week.
