NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Police are searching for two men wanted in an armed robbery in Algiers.

The incident happened around 4:30 p.m. Sunday inside of a vehicle near the intersection of Morgan and Seguin Streets. The victim, 27, claims he was robbed by 30-year-old Marc Brown and an unknown male.

The victim tells police that he planned to go with Brown for a couple of drinks in Algiers Point. Brown and an unknown man picked up the victim in a truck.

The victim told the two suspects that he was going to the casino later that night. When the driver approached the intersection of Morgan and Seguin Streets, police say Brown produced a handgun and struck the victim several times in the head.

Brown and the unknown suspect allegedly went through the victim's pockets and stole his cash.

Brown and the unknown male pushed the victim out of the vehicle. They left him in a parking lot next to the ferry and fled the location.

The second suspect was described as a white male approximately 6'0” tall and about 220 pounds.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the suspects is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
