NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police say they’ve arrested a 21-year-old man in an attack that hospitalized two Boston-area men.

Police say Dejuan Paul is accused of being one of four robbers who knocked the men to the ground, then took their wallets and cellphones Saturday in the French Quarter. Paul was arrested on a second-degree robbery charge.

Surveillance video provided by police showed four robbers attacking the men from behind. One man got back up on his feet. The other remained motionless and bleeding.

The Unitarian Universalist Association identified the injured men to New Orleans media as staffers Tim Byrne and James Curran. The church group met in New Orleans over the weekend.

Curran remained hospitalized Monday.

Spokeswoman Rachel Walden told The Associated Press the association would have no more comment.
