On Sunday, October 27, 2013, a male and his female companion were in town from Mississippi for the New Orleans Saints Game. After dinning in at a local restaurant, the couple walked the French Quarter. At about 7:00 pm, the couple was followed by four male subjects.
The male subjects produced a firearm and demanded for the tourist money. The male victim believed the firearm was a toy and attempted to protect himself and his female companion.
All subjects fled on foot.
Patrolling Officers were notified by concerned citizens. Officers observed the subjects running; at which time the Officers gave foot chase. The perpetrators were able to successfully elude Officers.
Suspects observed on surveillance are described as three black males and one white male, appeared to be young (between the ages of 15-18).
During the foot chase by Officers, the perpetrators tossed aside their weapon, later discovered by Officers to be a toy BB gun.
