Staying inside: The frigid temperatures during last week kept things so tame that the only incidents reported were one a week ago Sunday (1.30.11) when 2 hookers stabbed a guy at the LaQuinta Inn on Camp Street and another this past Saturday (2.5.11) at La Pavillion Hotel on Poydras when 2 employees got into it and one let the other have it with a boxcutter.
Crimes solved: 8th District cops did manage to make a couple of collars to solve crimes from the week before:
- Taft Williams, 18, was arrested last Friday (2.4.11) and charged with simple robbery for allegedly swiping the iPhone of a 31-year-old woman who was taking pictures near Bourbon and St. Peter streets on 1.25.11 around 11:30 p.m.
- Bodhi McGowan, 18, was arrested last Wednesday (2.2.11) and charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly pulled a pistol on a buddy 1.25.11 in the 600 block of Chartres Street.
