On Sunday, March 10, 2013, at or about 4:45AM a witness stated that he and his girlfriend noticed three unknown black males standing outside of the Friendly Bar, located on the corner of Chartres and Marigny Streets.  The witness stated that one of the subjects approached him and tried to strike up a conversation.  The witness made it clear that he didn't want to talk.  While the witness was trying to halt the conversation he noticed the victim walking by.  The witness then watched all four subjects begin to follow the victim. 

Moments later the two witnesses observed the subjects beating the victim on the corner of Chartres and Mandeville Streets with a bottle.  They called 911.  Police and EMS arrived shortly thereafter.  The victim was transported to the hospital where he was treated for numerous lacerations and fractures to his face.  The victim is still in intensive care and will require cosmetic surgery.  Police learned the victim was still in possession of his cash and cellular phone and the no other property was taken. 

With the public's help, detectives were able locate several surveillance cameras within the French Quarter that captured the suspects walking around the French Quarter prior to the incident.
