NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

New Orleans police are searching for suspects in three weekend armed robberies.

The incident occurred at 11:41 p.m. near the intersection of Villere and Dumaine streets.

The victim, a 22-year-old woman, was approached by three suspects, described as armed black men, who demanded her property.

She told the suspects she had no money.  One of the men then hit her in the face, possibly with the gun.

The victim sustained a broken jaw.

In an incident very similar in nature, a man was robbed at gunpoint in the 2300 block of North Rampart Street.

The victim, a 44-year-old man, was approached by three suspects, described as black men, who ordered him to the ground.

One of the suspects hit the victim with a gun and demanded his property.

The victim complied and the perpetrators fled with an IPad and keys.

Earlier in the evening, two men entered the Dollar General store in the 8400 block of Chef Menteur Highway.

Two armed suspects entered the business and ordered all the cashiers to put all the money in a bag.

The cashiers complied and the suspects fled in unknown direction.
