Soros-backed Orleans Parish District Attorney Jason Williams and his elderly mother fell victim to a carjacking on Monday evening in New Orleans, when two perpetrators reportedly wielded high-powered automatic rifles during the incident, Fox 8 reports.
The incident took place as Williams was escorting his mother to his vehicle, with the assailants swiftly approaching and threatening them at gunpoint, demanding the surrender of the DA's car.
"OPDA confirms that DA Williams and his 78-year-old mother were carjacked at gunpoint as he was helping her into a car," office spokesman Keith Lampkin said.
According to reports, the suspects hastily absconded with the vehicle but later abandoned it at an undisclosed location. Subsequently, within a mere half-hour timeframe, they committed another carjacking, targeting a young woman in the vicinity, as confirmed by the New Orleans Police Department.
The NOPD disclosed that the unsettling occurrence unfolded around 10 pm on Race Street in the Lower Garden District. Fortunately, the culprits were impeded from making a successful escape as Williams had kept the key fob securely in his possession.
In response to the matter, Williams has expressed his intention to recuse himself and his office from the case if and when the perpetrators are apprehended. In such a scenario, the criminal division of Attorney General Jeff Landry’s office will take over the proceedings.
This comes in the wake of Williams issuing a stark warning earlier this year regarding the escalating violence in New Orleans and across the nation, as crime continues to wreak havoc in the city.
"Williams declined to prosecute 65% of all criminal cases in New Orleans in 2021, but slowly began to prosecute more cases as crime in the city rose" The Daily Caller reported.
