NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A man, who FOX 8 will not identify, says he witnessed the attempted kidnapping of a woman and shooting of a Tulane Medical Student early Friday morning.

“I have definitely had a little bit of trouble sleeping over the past few days,” says the witness. “I just hope the law takes its course.”

The man, who police say committed the crimes remains in jail.

Prosecutors called suspect Euric Cain a menace to society before a Judge denied him bond.

According to Cain’s arrest warrant, obtained by FOX 8, the female victim was walking down Magazine St. when she fell to the ground. About the same time, an unknown black male parks a grey Ford Expedition on St. Mary Street and walks up to the female victim. The female victim resists.

It goes on to say the suspect threw the victim to the ground and ripped her purse away from her.

Surveillance video shows good samaritan and Tulane Med Student Peter Gold, pull up and approach the female victim.

The warrant goes on to say the suspect walked up to the male victim, pointed a gun at him and demanded money.

“I heard the guy yelling hey man, I don’t have any money. It was pretty loud to catch the attention of somebody, and I looked outside my window and right when I looked outside I saw him being shot in the stomach,” says the witness.

After shooting Gold in the stomach, the video shows the gunman trying to shoot him in the head several times but the weapon jammed.

Monday afternoon, the NOPD, alongside U.S. Marshals arrested Cain inside of a home on Delachaise Street.

Police also arrested Cain’s alleged girlfriend, Nictoria Washington, who they say was with him at the time.

She’s booked with being an accessory to armed robbery and received a 100 thousand dollar bond.

Her family did not comment as they left court.

The Judge denied Cain bond on the attempted kidnapping and attempted murder charges. Bond was set at 400 thousand dollars for the attempted armed robbery and armed robbery charges.

Bond reduction hearings are set for both Cain and Washington on December 3rd at Criminal District Court.
