NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The NOPD searches for a man they say slapped and robbed his ex-girlfriend. Investigators are hoping the public can help them locate 33-year-old Bernette Darby.
Police say Darby showed up at his ex-girlfriend's home on Parc Brittany Drive on the afternoon of Feb. 3. They say he immediately started an argument over the cleanliness of the house and asked her if she had any money. When she said no, police say he slapped her, pulled a pistol and demanded her money. Fearing for her safety, investigators say she gave Darby more than $350 in cash. Darby took off on foot.
Police say when they catch him, they intend to book Darby with armed robbery and simple battery.
Police warn Darby may be armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers, 822-1111. Citizens can also submit an anonymous tip online to Crimestoppers at www.crimestoppersgno.org.
