NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The NOPD arrested two men believed to be involved in the Bourbon Street beating of a pizza delivery man. The Sunday morning attack was caught on cell phone video.

The video shows a Domino's employee surrounded by several men. The victim told police the suspects asked to buy pizza by the slice, and when he told them he wasn't allowed to do that, they attacked him.

New Orleans police initially arrested Rashad Hardy and Derrick Pruitt, both of Laurel, MS, for second-degree battery. After re-interviewing the victim, officers added a charge of attempted simple robbery. The victim said the suspects also tried to take pizza.

Investigators are still looking for two other suspects.
