New Orleans police are looking for a man allegedly involved in an aggravated burglary Monday afternoon (March 4) in the 7th Ward.
Police said Datron Cooks, 30, entered a relative’s home in the 2300 block of A.P. Tureaud Avenue around 1:15 p.m. through the unlocked front door. He had a semiautomatic handgun in his right hand and did not have permission to enter, police said.
A 32-year-old woman tried to stop Cooks and they began to scuffle, police said. A 23-year-old man jumped in, and Cooks allegedly struck him in the head with a gun. The woman tried to stop the fight between them, and Cooks allegedly struck her in the head, too, police said.
The man then tried to stop the fight between Cooks and the woman, and Cooks allegedly told the woman to get away or he would come back and shoot up the house, according to police.
A 49-year-old woman also was present at the time, according to police.
Anyone with information on this incident or on Cooks’ whereabouts should contact the Fifth District Investigative Unit at 504.658.6050 or call Crimestoppers anonymously at 504.822.1111 or 1.877.903.7867.
