NOPD increasing officer visibility on Lafitte Greenway

NEW ORLEANS -- NOPD is investigating a mugging on the Lafitte Greenway in Mid-City.

For people who use the path for exercise or to get around town, hearing about trouble on the trail is very concerning.

"I hate to even hear about that kind of stuff, you know because when I get out here and run, I feel safe," Kelan Barton said. "But, when I hear about something like that, it makes me a little bit hardened and I'm like woah, do I need to look over my shoulder?"

"You tell me that someone got mugged, it kind of threw me off a little because I ride this strip regularly," Cardell Wright said. "I work for Gerhold Electric. I ride my bike back and forth this way."
