Man accepts Bourbon Street stranger's offer, wakes up broke

New Orleans police are asking the public for help in identifying a woman wanted for theft and access device fraud.

According to an NOPD news release, the victim, a 35-year-old male, was walking on Bourbon Street early Tuesday morning when a woman approached and invited him to hang out with her.

The victim and suspect then went to the victim's hotel in the 600 block of St. Charles Avenue. The victim later went to sleep, and when he awoke,  he found the suspect gone along with his credit cards, a Rolex watch and $100 cash.

During the investigation, police found that the suspect had used the victim's credit cards 20 times at businesses in the 4600 block of Chef Menteur Highway, where she was captured on surveillance video.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Eighth District Detective Lain Watt at  (504) 658-6080.
