Boston visitors hurt in New Orleans attack; 1 hospitalized

Police in New Orleans announced Monday they had arrested a 21-year-old man in connection with the assault and robbery of two MA men over the weekend.

The tourists, identified as James Curran and Tim Byrne of Boston, were leisurely walking through the French Quarter on their way back to their hotel just before 9pm, when they were jumped from behind and then robbed by four men.

One victim appears to be slammed face-first into a brick walkway while the other is punched and pushed to the ground. Curran, out of the hospital, was left with a broken nose and stitches in his face, according to a relative.

Police Superintendent Michael Harrison said Monday morning that the suspects are now wanted on second-degree robbery charges because of the severity of the injuries.

Byrne appears to be knocked out cold and falls face first onto the pavement. Half a minute later, two passersby walk over and attempt to help Curran and Byrne, presumably calling police. The other remained motionless and bleeding as passers-by arrived on the scene.

The tourists were in town for the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association, an annual meeting of the religious group, the TV station reported. The assailant continues to punch Curran as he struggles to drag Curran to the ground.
