NEW ORLEANS – One man is on the loose and a 19-year-old woman is under arrest after the pair robbed a man of his skateboard at gunpoint yesterday morning.  The case is the latest to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

Catina Bridges and an unidentified man got off of a bus at the corner of Tulane Avenue and South Saratoga Street behind the 24-year-old victim around 9 a.m. on August 1, according to the NOPD.

Shortly after exiting the bus, the unidentified man hit the victim and Bridges pulled a gun and demanded money.
