NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - An Uber driver's car and cellphone were stolen at gunpoint early Sunday morning.

According to a preliminary report from NOPD, a 39-year-old female Uber driver was driving near the intersection of North Tonti and Louisa around 2 a.m. when a silver Chevy Equinox blocked her path.

A man with a black scarf over his face got out of the Equinox and pointed a gun at the Uber driver, demanding she get out of her car. The woman complied and a second robber approached her, demanding her cellphone. The driver handed over her cellphone and the two robbers fled the scene, the masked man in her car, the other in the Equinox.

Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to call CRIMESTOPPERS at 504-822-1111.
