Search for French Quarter rapist



New Orleans police are looking for a man they say is a rapist and a robber.

"The female victim was out at a local bar located at the corner of Bourbon St. and Conti St., when an unknown black male approached her and they began talking," according to the NOPD news release.  "The subject offered to buy her a drink and she accepted. After talking and drinking, the victim was ready to leave and
he offered to walk with her."

Investigators say they when the two got to the 300 block of Decatur, Leo Earl Dixon attacked the women.

"The subject sexually assaulted her and took her cell phone and money, then fled the location."
