NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Police say they have arrested one man and are looking for others after a woman reported she was gang raped at a New Orleans hotel. Times-Picayune reports 25-year-old Patrick Mooney was arrested March 6 and charged with first-degree rape.

The warrant for his arrest says six or seven men entered Mooney’s hotel room and took turns sexually assaulting the intoxicated woman Mooney had met at a Bourbon Street bar and with whom he was having sex. The warrant says they also hit and slapped her.

Mooney, who has a Dublin, Ireland, drivers license, was extradited from Austin, Texas. Police say they are seeking at least three other men, all believed to be in Texas.
