The victims were jumped on by four men shortly before 9 p.m., the New Orleans Police Department said.

The Advocate reports that victim speaking to authorities is 32 years old. Surveillance video captured four men attacking two other men from behind as they were walking down the street.

Within moments, four robbers apparently working in concert took the men's cellphones and wallets, but the stolen property was the least of anyone's worries after police released surveillance camera footage of the savage ambush.

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.

New Orleans Police Officer Juan Barnes Sr. says the siblings were arguing from their cars in the Little Woods neighborhood. NOPD said the age of the man in critical condition is unknown.

The other tourist was pummeled from behind by another man and hit the ground face first, appearing to be knocked out cold. Association spokeswoman Rachel Walden said Curran was treated and released following Saturday's attack, but Byrne remained hospitalized Monday. Paul is charged with second-degree robbery, according to the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office website. The attacker quickly rummages through Byrne's pockets as two other men run up and appear to help rob both victims. The next thing he knew, he was on the ground and was being robbed, the relative said.

One of the robbers then runs back into frame and briefly lifts the second victim off the sidewalk by the back of his shirt, revealing what appears to be a large pool of blood, before dropping the victim back on the sidewalk and running away.
