There weren't even any physical fracases. There were a half dozen auto thefts, a few auto burglaries, and a number of other thefts, but no one was accosted and robbed. Not even for a cellphone.
Of course, this is a new week: Nothing lasts forever and a few robbers got back in the act this past Monday (11.22.10):
- 12:30 a.m.: Two white guys, 24 and 28, were walking in the 900 block of Burgundy Street (between Dumaine and St. Philip streets) when they were accosted by 4 black thugs. One of them pulled a pistol and demanded the victims' money. Then the victims complied, they were told to walk away and not look back.
- 3:20 a.m.: A 28-year-old white woman walking near Conti and Dauphine streets was jumped by 2 blacks. One knocked her to the ground and the other held a weapon of some sort to her back, while they grabbed her purse. The robbers fled on foot up Dauphine toward Bienville Street.
- 10 p.m.: A 25-year-old white woman walking on Dauphine Street near Toulouse Street was attacked by a gang of 6 black chicks who struck her, knocked her to the ground and snatched away her purse.
Can't we all just get along: Last Sunday (11.21.10) a group of white folks, 2 men and 3 women, were walking on Canal Street near University Place around 10:25 p.m. when they got into a fight with 2 black dudes. One of the blacks pulled a gun and pointed it at the whites then fled on foot.
Oh...and a murder: Details are still skimpy on the murder of a 21-year-old man this morning (11.26.10) around 3:30 a.m. at Dauphine and Canal streets.
