Filmore area carjacking caught on camera

Man carjacked in Filmore area

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Surveillance cameras rolled in the Filmore neighborhood Tuesday night as a masked subject carjacked a man in his driveway.

At about 11:30 p.m., the victim was parking his Toyota Camry in the 1400 block of Athis Street  when the subject jumped out of a waiting silver truck, pulled a gun and demanded the victim's property.

The victim complied and the attacker jumped into the victim's car and took off.

A neighbor said the victim's wife and young toddler were inside the house at the time of the attack.

"To see criminals think that they can come into our neighborhood with guns and demand whatever they want with no regard for our lives or our kids' lives – it's just very scary," she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
