NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – New Orleans police are investigating a second carjacking where a social media encounter lured the victim to the crime scene.
Authorities say this time, an 18-year-old man drove to the 2100 block of Danneel Street around 9:30 p.m. Monday to pick up a girl he met online. As he waited for her to come outside ten men, four armed with weapons forced the victim out of his car, a New Orleans police report said.
No further information was released Tuesday morning.
It’s the second carjacking reported by police in the past week where the victim said he met the woman on social media. Read more on that HERE.
