New Orleans police have identified two suspects wanted in violent French Quarter crimes that happened in the past week.

The Police Department is asking for the public’s help in finding 26-year-old Wendell Butler, who is wanted in a shooting that happened Sunday morning in the 300 block of Bourbon Street, between Bienville and Conti streets.

Just before 8 a.m., Butler got into an argument with a 43-year-old man over their girlfriends, police said. Butler then allegedly took out a gun and shot the man in the arm and once in the leg before fleeing.

The victim was taken to a hospital, where he underwent surgery.

The NOPD said detectives positively identified Butler and got a warrant for his arrest on a count of aggravated battery by shooting.

Anyone knowing his whereabouts is asked to contact the 8th District Investigative Unit at (504) 658-6080 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.

Also on Sunday, police announced that, through a Crimestoppers tip, they have identified a man wanted in an armed robbery and stabbing committed Wednesday on Gov. Nicholls Street. Police are asking the public to help them find 23-year-old Leo Dorsey in that incident.

A 21-year-old man told police that he was walking in the 1000 block of Gov. Nicholls Street, between Dauphine and Burgundy streets, just after 10 p.m. Wednesday, when about eight people approached him from behind and surrounded him. One, armed with a gun, demanded his property, and the man handed over his Samsung Galaxy cellphone.

At the same time, two other men, ages 21 and 43, were walking down the same street. The first victim told police he heard the gunman yell to the other seven, “Go get them.”

Three of the eight then approached the two men and surrounded them. At that point, Dorsey allegedly took out a knife and began stabbing the 43-year-old man in the chest. The assailants then fled without saying or taking anything, and the victim was taken to the hospital with multiple stab wounds.

After the incident, police said, detectives received a Crimestoppers tip and were able to identify Dorsey as the man who did the stabbing. Police have gotten an arrest warrant for Dorsey on counts of armed robbery and aggravated battery.

Dorsey also is wanted on another charge of aggravated battery, unrelated to Wednesday’s crime, and is on probation until September for a charge of second-degree battery.

Dorsey should be considered armed and dangerous, police said. His last known address was 2806 Clara St.

Anyone knowing his whereabouts is asked to contact the 8th District Investigative Unit at (504) 658-6080 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
