NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A man and his girlfriend walking in the French Quarter were jumped by a group that beat and robbed them.
Police say the couple was walking near Bourbon Street about 5:30 Monday morning. Two women walked in front of them. Authorities say a vehicle then stopped and two men got out of the car and assaulted the man, beating him with a gun and taking his belongings.
The two women then turned and assaulted the woman and took her belongings.
Police said Tuesday that all four of the robbers then got in the vehicle and fled in an unknown direction.
