NOPD reports around 6 p.m., the victim had parked her white Subaru Outback in front of a Gentilly home when she exited the car to grab an item.
When she was walking back to her car, the woman was reportedly approached by a heavy-set Black female wearing a blue or purple hooded jacket. The woman says the suspect demanded her keys and threatened to kill her.
The woman handed the keys over and the female suspect left, soon being joined by another suspect in a red hooded jacket. Their gender is unknown.
Police say while driving away in the victim’s car, the two suspects struck two parked vehicles, which damaged the stolen crossover’s hood, right bumper, and right rear bumper.
NOPD continues to search for the carjacking suspects and the stolen car, which is described as a white 2013 Subaru Outback bearing Louisiana license plate XNR577.
