NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The NOPD is investigating two home invasions that happened early Sunday morning (March 19th).

The first invasion happened across the street from the Fairgrounds around 2:30 a.m.

Police say two unknown suspects broke into a victim’s living room, hit him with a firearm and took some of his things before leaving.

The second happened two hours later in Algiers. An unknown man and a woman later identified as Dlanica Mercadel entered a home on Hermosa Street.

The two suspects damaged the owner’s property at gunpoint, and the male suspect hit the victim before taking his belongings and leaving.
