NOPD Searching For Suspects For Brutal French Quarter Robbery
A tourist visiting New Orleans remained in critical condition at last report after a brutal beating during a robbery in the French Quarter.
NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison says the entire incident was caught on video.
"And this is a message to the people that did this," said Harrison. "In just a little while, everybody is going to see you, everybody will know exactly who you are, and we're coming for you."
Investigators are seeking assistance in identifying and locating four suspects wanted in connection with the second degree robbery. Harrison says they are also asking for additional video from the community if it's out there.
"But what we have right now is pretty good," said Harrison. "We're putting that out to the community, and every time we get something new we'll put that out too."
Harrison says there were two victims and they were in town visiting from the Boston area. Harrison said the incident occurred shortly before 9pm Saturday night.
"To our knowledge, they were en route back to their hotel room when this unfortunate incident took place," said Harrison.
