Woman carjacked while pumping gas on Elysian Fields near the interstate
A woman was carjacked while pumping gas Sunday (March 28) afternoon at the Shell station in 3000 block of Elysian Fields, the New Orleans Police Department reported.
While the victim was filling her silver Toyota Camry with gas at about 1:30 p.m., two men drove up. One entered the Camry from the passenger’s side while the other approached the victim and grabbed her purse.
One man drove off in her Camry while the other fled in the car they arrived in, which is also silver.
In December, two similar crimes took place at gas stations near the interstate, including one against a man who was putting air in his tires at the same station.
