NEW ORLEANS -- Two men are wanted by police for the armed robbery of a cab driver in the French Quarter on May 27. The incident was reported Wednesday. 

The men were picked up by the cab driver near the intersection of St. Louis and Royal streets around 4:30 a.m. on May 27, according to police.  The men made the cab driver stop at one place in the French Quarter, and as the cab approached Canal Street near the Saenger Theatre, one man pulled a gun and demanded the driver's cash.

After the cab driver gave up the money, the men jumped out of the cab into a waiting SUV, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
