NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A witness captured dramatic video of an unarmed carjacking in Mid-City. New Orleans police hope the public will recognize the perpetrator.

The perpetrator exited the passenger side of the red Impala, approached the victim’s vehicle and began punching the victim several times with a closed fist, before pulling the victim out of the vehicle.

The man then entered the victim’s vehicle and fled the scene. The victim’s vehicle was later recovered near the intersection of South Murat St. and Cleveland Ave.

The red Chevrolet Impala was further described as having an unknown license plate and damage to its front passenger side fender, near the headlight.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Third District detectives at 504-658-6030 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free at 1-877-903-STOP.
