Police identified the two arrested suspects as 21-year-old Dejuan Paul, arrested Monday, and 18-year-old Joshua T. Simmons, arrested Tuesday.

Police say Brister chased the victim but lost him. His colleague, Tim Byrne, was rushed to University Medical Center in critical condition where he remained Monday.

The two men who were assaulted and robbed in the Bienville Street case have been identified as James Curran and Tim Byrne, staff members with the Unitarian Universalist Association.
