A 26-year-old man has been arrested and charged with attacking and robbing two men in Sunset Park.

Authorities allege that on April 21 at around 3:18 a.m., three men, one being 26-year-old John Anderson, followed the two victims, one 30, the other 40, to the northwest corner of Fourth Avenue and 36th Street, where two of them threw punches at the victims.

The suspects fled the scene but police apprehended Anderson at the rear of a building near Fifth Avenue and 34th Street at around 4:07 a.m.

Anderson was charged with robbery, assault and criminal trespassing.
