The New Orleans Police Department said the alleged victim met with what he thought were two women Friday in a motel room, The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune reported Saturday.
He tried to leave the room when he realized the two women were in fact men. A third person came out of the motel bathroom and all three suspects allegedly beat the man, and ran away with his cash, credit cards and cell phone, police said.
Police identified one suspect as Herbert James Bickham, who is known for wearing women's clothing and wigs, and frequenting the hotel where the incident took place.
