NEW ORLEANS A man who went to meet a woman he had befriended over the Internet was carjacked by the woman and two men early Wednesday morning on St. Anthony Street, according to police.

A spokesman said that the victim stated he went to meet the woman, known to him as 'Ali W' on the social media site 'Tagged,' in the 2200 block of St. Anthony around 4 a.m.

Police said the victim noticed the woman in front of a home on the block and he pulled up and began talking to her. At some point, the woman went back inside of the home and came back out with another man who got into the passenger side of the car and demanded the victim get out.

At that point, police said the two men began fighting, but another man came to the driver's side window and pointed a gun at the victim.

The victim got out of the car and the two men, along with the woman got in the car and drove off.

One of the suspects was described as 6-feet tall, weighing between 190-200 pounds with high cheek bones, large lips, a medium-sized nose, a short fade hairstyle and a goatee.

The other suspect was described as a black male, about 5-feet-10 and weighing about 190 pounds.
