COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Prince George's County police have arrested two men accused of robbing two University of Maryland students in College Park.

Police on Saturday identified the men as Akauh Johann Kassi, of Silver Spring, and Diamante Akeem Sulaiman, of Burtonsville. Both are 18 years old and face charges including robbery and second-degree assault.

Police say the two men approached two students at Baltimore Avenue and Pontiac Street just after midnight Saturday, assaulted them and stole their cell phones and a wallet. Neither student was injured.

Kassi and Sulaiman were stopped not far from the robbery location.

It wasn't immediately clear if the men have defense lawyers.
