He then asked the victim to return his mother’s umbrella, and the victim told him she would get it “when she felt like it,” according to the NOPD.

At this point, the suspect pulled out a gun and took the victim’s wallet and cell phone.

The suspect told the victim she could have her wallet and cell phone back when she returned his mother’s umbrella.
