Suspects sought for attacking couple in the French Quarter

New Orleans, La. - The NOPD is searching for three suspects who attacked a couple in the French Quarter as they walked to their car.

It happened around 6am last Saturday at the intersection of Iberville and Dauphine Street.

Police say the victims were walking down the street looking for their vehicle when they were approached by three African-American males who began to verbally harass them.    

The verbal altercation escalated, and that's when one of the suspects punched the female victim in the mouth while the other suspects began beating the male. 

The female victim sustained a swollen lip and the male victim sustained a broken jaw requiring him to be hospitalized and undergo surgery.  

If you can help identify the three suspects in the picture, call Crimestoppers at 822-1111.
