Some people were walking in the 1000 block of St. Louis Street in the French Quarter about 2:30 a.m. Saturday when they were approached from behind by three men who punched them.
After the victims fell down, they were robbed of cash, a wallet and a cellphone by the three men, who then fled, police said.
NOPD detectives said two people later posted photographs to social media using the stolen cellphone. They would like to question two young men named “Kyle” and “Geeno,” who described themselves on Instagram as part of the “Black Rag Mafia Gang.”
The two are not suspects in the incident but may have information about it, police said.
