Police search for car used in attempted robbery

Police are asking for the publics help locating a blue sedan involved in an attempted purse snatching.

On June 7 the victim was riding her bike near the intersection of Dauphine and Spain Streets when a car, much like the ones pictured above, attempted to cut her off. A young black man and woman then got out of the car, pushed her to the ground and demanded her backpack.

The victim says she screamed for help and several people came out of their homes causing the would-be robbers to flee.

The victim described two of the subjects as a black female around 15-17 years old in a pink shirt and a black male around 15-17 years old in a red shirt.

Anyone with information on this vehicle is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
