NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Police released a sketch of one of two suspects wanted for striking a person in the head while they rode their bicycle down Esplanade Avenue this past Friday.

NOPD is searching for a 6-foot, 170-pound black 18-year-old. He is described as having an athletic build and a dark complexion and was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with a center pocket as well as grey sweatpants.

Another suspect, whom police haven’t released a sketch of, is described as a 5-5 or 5-7 black teenager with a stocky build and a dark complexion. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with grey trimming around the hood and sleeves and also had a center pocket. He was armed, police said, with a grey aluminum bat covered in black paint.

According to police, the victim of the attack was riding north on Esplanade Avenue towards City Park when one of the two teenagers – the one shown in the sketch – stepped off the neutral ground to impede the bicycle near North Robertson Street.

The other man police are looking for stepped out from behind a parked car and swung the baseball bat at the man on riding the bicycle.

The man with the bat began following the rider as he attempted to escape.
