Hold on to the wheel: With 3 carjackings on 3 consecutive days this week, it would pay to be vigilant when you're going to your car.
- The most recent incident was Tuesday (12.23.08) when a Hispanic man was parking his car in the 1700 block of Burgundy Street (between Kerlerec and St. Anthony streets) in the Marigny Triangle at 2:20 p.m. when 2 black dudes accosted him, pulling a pistol and demanding his money and car keys. The victim got out of his car and the robbers fled up Burgundy to Esplanade Avenue, then toward the river.
- The day before, Monday (12.22.08), and also in the Marigny Triangle, a 36-year-old white man was approached at almost the same time, 2:05 p.m., by a black man in front of 723 Touro St. (between Dauphine and Royal streets) as he was unlocking his car. The robber pulled a pistol and demanded the victim's wallet and car keys. The thief fled in the car up Touro to Royal, then toward Esplanade.
- On Sunday (12.21.08), a Hispanic man sitting in his vehicle on St. Louis Street near Bourbon Street in the French Quarter at 6:20 a.m. was robbed of his car by a black dude who pulled a pistol and demanded his keys.
Thefts on the court: Chris Paul is not the only one making thefts on the basketball court. 3 black thugs held up an Asian couple (he 19 years old, she 15) who were shooting hoops at Cabrini Park (Dauphine and Barracks streets) on Monday at 10 p.m.
