Only one arrested: Of 4 simple robberies over the weekend, the police did manage one arrest:
- Saturday (7.17.10) 5 a.m.: After a black guy pulled a 25-year-old white guy's wallet from his pocket as he was walking near the intersection of Gravier and Magazine streets, police arrested Kenneth Reed, 50, and charged him with simple robbery. He is in OPP on $15,000 bond.
- Saturday (7.17.10) 2:15 a.m.: A white man walking in the 800 block of Bourbon Street (between St. Ann and Dumaine streets) was robbed by 2 Hispanic creeps who grabbed a chain from the victim's neck and fled on foot down Dumaine, turning on Royal Street toward Canal Street.
- Saturday (7.17.10) 8:20 p.m.: In another bicycle bandit incident, a 37-year-old woman walking with her husband in the 100 block of Carondelet (just across Canal Street from Bourbon Street) when the robber swooped by and pulled her purse from her grasp and fled on Common Street toward St. Charles Avenue.
- Sunday (7.18.10) 2:30 a.m.: A 22-year-old white chick (young and dumb, it seems) standing at S. Rampart Street and Tulane Avenue was being chatted up by 2 black dudes and a Mexican male when her iPhone rang. When she took it out to answer it (dumb mistake) one of her new-found friends grabbed it out of her hand and fled with his buddies on foot up S. Rampart toward Poydras Street.
Wanted very badly: 8th District detectives have issued an arrest warrant for Eugene Forrest, one real bad-ass dude. He is wanted for 2 incidents last Tuesday (7.13.10), a simple robbery in Gentilly and an aggravated burglary in the Marigny Triangle.
Forrest was developed as a suspect by Det. Jerusha Hillman after he allegedly walked into an unlocked apartment at 2101 Burgundy St. (the corner of Frenchmen Street) around 2:45 p.m. while the 34-year-old male resident was home. The suspect had already lifted the victim's laptop computer when the tenant walked into the room, at which point the robber pulled a pistol and demanded the victim's wallet. The robber fled with the wallet and computer in a black 4-door sedan.
In the first incident that day, a man believed to be Forrest walked into a business in the 3200 block of Gentilly Boulevard about 9:40 a.m. under the guise of wanting to fill out a job application. He started grabbing the business owner's possessions and then struggled with the victim before fleeing in the black sedan.
