The New Orleans Police Department is looking for five suspects -- three black males and two black females -- wanted in connection with an armed robbery in the French Quarter early Christmas morning.

Just after 2 a.m., a man, 39, was walking in the 600 block of St. Philip Street when the group of five attacked him and knocked him to the ground. The suspects kicked and hit the man in the head while trying to rob him. They fled when they saw someone -- a potential witness -- walking toward them.

NOPD is unable to provide more details on the suspects at this point.

Anyone with information that can help solve this crime are asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or toll-free 1-877-903-STOP.
