Man goes on date, later carjacked by date, 2 men
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A man who met a woman on a social media website was carjacked by the woman and two men.
The carjacking happened about 4 a.m. Wednesday.
Police say the victim met the woman, identified as "Ali W," on the social media website Tagged.
The victim said he and the woman talked inside his car for about five minutes. Investigators say she then went inside a home, returned and got in the car, and another man forced his way into the car and demanded the victim get out. A fight ensued and a third man approached the driver's side and pointed a gun at him, demanding he get out of the car.
Police say the victim complied and the trio fled in the man's car — a red 2010 Dodge Challenger, with black flames across the sides and Louisiana license plate VOV 253.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
