2 teens sought in French Quarter robbery

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Police are seeking two male teenagers they say beat up a man walking on Bourbon Street and stole his iPhone on Sunday afternoon.

The incident happened about 5:30 p.m. in the 400 block of Bourbon Street, a heavily trafficked French Quarter tourist corridor.

Police said the victim was walking and video-chatting with a friend on his iPhone, unaware he was being followed.

One of the juveniles attempted to grab the man's phone, police said. When he couldn't, the second teen knocked the victim to the ground, investigators said.

Police said they pair then fled toward the Mississippi River.
