Two people are wanted by New Orleans Police for questioning in connection to a July 3 simple robbery on Dauphine Street.

Through an investigation, officers learned the incident occurred shortly after 2:30 a.m. when the first person (bottom of the picture) was with the victim in the 400 block of Dauphine Street and the second person (top of the picture) approached them a short time later, according to New Orleans Police.
