4 arrested in French Quarter armed robbery

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police have arrested four suspects in an armed robbery in the city's French Quarter.

Police say a group of people were trying to hail a cab early Sunday morning when one of the suspects approached and robbed them at gunpoint, stealing a victim's wallet before fleeing in a silver vehicle.

One of the victims gave the vehicle's license plate number to police officers, who stopped the car and arrested the four suspects. Police also seized two guns they allegedly found in the car.

The alleged gunman, 21-year-old Joshua Turner, was booked on one count of armed robbery and two counts of attempted armed robbery.

The other three suspects were booked on charges of being principals to an armed robbery. All four suspects are Baton Rouge residents.
