In one of the cases, the NOPD released multiple pieces of surveillance camera footage of the suspect who police say is a sex worker who cut two people with a straight razor during an altercation at Willy’s Chicken Shack in the 700 block of Canal Street.

In another case on April 24, police say an unidentified man in a Chewbacca costume cut a man with a knife following a disagreement in the 700 block of Toulouse Street.

On April 5, police say a man got into a fight with another man inside of a business in the French Quarter and then stabbed the victim when the fight spilled over to the street in the 700 block of St. Louis Street.
