In the Big Easy:
Police are trying to identify the four people who brutally attacked two men in town for a religious convention as they walked in the French Quarter Saturday night during a robbery, leaving one victim in critical condition at a local hospital.
James Curran and Tim Byrne were in town from Boston to attend the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association, the annual meeting of the liberal religious association.
Curran was treated for a broken nose and released following Saturday's attack, but Byrne remained hospitalized Monday. (via WWLTV)
A Georgia restaurant owner and her teenage daughter said they were attacked by customers who were served cold chicken, CBS affiliate WTOC-TV in Savannah reports. Jeanette Norris, owner of the Qwik Chik restaurant in Baxley, Georgia, said the attack happened Thursday after a couple complained about their order of chicken being cold. After a few minutes of arguing back-and-forth, Norris said she refunded their money -- but this did not satisfy the customers. "She went berserk," Norris told WTOC-TV. "They both lost it, him and her both started cussing and beating on the window." Norris confronted the couple outside, telling them she had called the police, but that's when the female customer began striking her in the face. Norris's daughter then exited a truck to help when the male customer punched the teenager in the face.
