Update:  The NOPD says its officers have spoken with the woman involved in this case.  Police say she was found in good health.  They also say they have identified the suspect and have reclassified the case as a, “…simple battery (domestic).”  It is no longer a kidnapping investigation.


NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD is searching for a man and woman after they say he kidnapped her after a fight inside the Dave and Busters in the 1200 block of Poydras Street.

Investigators say that the female victim was having drinks and playing video games with the suspect around 5:15 p.m. Sunday evening when they got into a fight.

The fight turned physical and the woman left the business.

That’s when they say the suspect (seen in the above surveillance photo) followed her out and forced her into a blue Toyota Tundra and fled the scene.

The NOPD is now looking for the victim and the suspect.
