NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans police have arrested a 23-year-old male and a 15-year-old male for two recent armed robberies that took place in the Uptown and Broadmoor neighborhoods. Alcide Hebert, 23 and a 15-year-old juvenile were taken into custody following a recent burglary at a Broadmoor home. 

According to police, the first armed robbery took place Tuesday, just after 6 p.m. in the 4400 block of Elba Street. A woman parked her car in her driveway and and she was unloading items from her car, three black men approached her. The woman noticed that one of the men was armed with a gun. The trio demanded her keys and the woman said that she did not have her keys and gave the men cash instead. During the robbery her neighbors came outside and the men fled the scene southbound on Elba Street then in an unknown direction. Police were provided descriptions of the suspects. 

Police say that the second incident occurred about an hour and 20 minutes later in the 2200 block of Robert Street. A woman parked her car near her home and as she got out of the vehicle, she saw three unknown black men approaching from Marlborough Gate. One of the suspects walked on to the sidewalk behind the victim  and told her to "drop it." After the victim ignored the demand and walked towards her front door, the suspect fired a gun towards the victim, hitting the glass on her front door. The suspect then told the victim "I could have taken your life because you did not listen." The three suspects fled south on Robert Street. The victims provided responding officers with descriptions of the suspects. 

Just before 10 p.m. on Thursday, police responded to a call of a house burglary in progress in the 4400 block of Elba Street. When officers arrived, they found two black males fleeing the area on foot. Officers took both suspects, later identified as Hebert and the 15-year-old juvenile, into custody. Police found a revolver within the block of where the pair were apprehended. Police say that the two arrested matched the descriptions given by the victims of the two armed robberies. 

According to police, no victims were injured in any of the incidents. Hebert later confessed to police about his involvement in the two armed robberies. Police booked both Hebert and the juvenile with two counts of use of a firearm during an armed robbery. 

If you have any additional information that could help police with these cases, you are asked to call the NOPD Second District Investigation Unit at 504-658-6020 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
