The NOPD is searching for the two pictured subjects seen on surveillance video wanted in connection with a simple robbery incident.

The incident happened on July 4, 2018. At about 1:42 a.m., the victim was standing at the

intersection of Royal Street and Pirates Alley taking a photo with his cellphone when one of the male suspects grabbed the victim from behind in a choke hold. The victim managed to push the subject away and the suspect fled the location.

The victim then realized that his glasses and wallet were both missing.

Surveillance video of two subjects can be seen here. The video was obtained with assistance from ProjectNOLA and shows one of the suspects going through the victim's wallet following the incident. 

Anyone with any information on the two subjects should contact any Eighth District officer at 504-658-6080. Citizens with information that can help solve a crime are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.
