One offender tried to steal a woman’s handbag and reached into the pockets of a man who rushed to her defence.
He took a mobile phone and personal documents and then assaulted the man.
His companion meanwhile pushed another man into a doorway and tried to take his belongings, then beat him up when he put up resistance.
The two assailants then got into a car with foreign licence plates and drove off. Police found the vehicle in the Eighth District and detained the two men in an apartment.
