NEW ORLEANS Three women who invited a woman claiming to be a voodoo priestess into their home were eventually forced to go to an ATM and withdraw money to give to the woman and two male accomplices Thursday night.

The incident occurred around 7:30 p.m. in the 1300 block of Esplanade.

According to police, the women invited the 'priestess' into their home to do some palm reading and when they were done, the 'priestess' demanded money and said that two bodyguards were outside. (the suspect and the 'bodyguards' are pictured above.)

The victims were ordered to go to a nearby ATM and withdraw more money, which they gave to the priestess.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
