CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Woman on sidewalk randomly stabs pedestrians

NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) - The New Orleans Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in locating and identifying a woman accused of walking down Decatur Street in New Orleans and randomly stabbing two men who were walking down the street.

It happened on November 30, 2014, in the 900 block of Decatur Street.

Shortly before 9 p.m., the woman walked down the sidewalk poking random pedestrians with an unknown sharp object. She appeared to be mumbling to herself as she walked down the street. Two men, 28 and 62-years-old, sustained minor lacerations.

The surveillance video captured both incidents and it appears that she turns around after she walked passed the men to see if they noticed.

The suspect was described as a white female, approximately 5'6" tall, in her 30s, having a thin build, and brunette hair. She was wearing an oversized camouflage jacket.

The incident was captured on surveillance video and can be seen here.
