(December 1, 2013)-  This morning, NOPD Fifth District Narcotics Detectives arrested 21-year-old Ronald Warren in the 1200 block of Louisa Street after he attempted to rob someone in the 4000 block of North Rampart Street in Bywater.

On Sunday, December 1, 2013, at 1:49am, Detectives Troy Williams Jr and Joshua Carwile were patrolling in the area when they heard the dispatched call of an attempted armed robbery in the 4000 block of North Rampart Street. Detectives observed a suspect matching the description of the broadcasted perpetrator near the intersection of Saint Claude and Louisa Street. Detectives Williams and Carwile attempted to speak with the suspect when he abruptly fled the area on foot.
