New Orleans Police are looking for a suspect they say robbed a 19-year-old driver in Lakeview Tuesday night.

"The victim was sitting inside her vehicle at the traffic light when the suspect approached and attempted to yank her from the vehicle," according to the Major Offense Log. "The suspect then grabbed the victim's purse and told her to give him everything."

It happened shortly after 9:00pm at Lakeshore Drive and Canal Blvd.

"The victim complied and handed the suspect cash. The suspect then fled eastbound in a 4-door black vehicle."
