NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD is looking for a man who knocked his cousin’s boyfriend unconscious with a metal pipe in New Orleans East.

Lacayo, the cousin of the victim’s girlfriend, first beat the victim with his fists.
When the victim tried to leave, Lacayo struck the victim across the back of his neck with a metal pipe, according to the NOPD.
