NEW YORK (AP) — Two teenagers have been arrested for assaulting two students from the UK inside a New York City train station.

Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says four people were seen assaulting the 23-year-old students, a woman and a man, early Sunday inside the 9th Street PATH station in New York’s Greenwich Village neighborhood.

Pantangelo says 17-year-old Deon Hinnat and a 14-year-old boy were arrested on gang assault charges. He says two other suspects remain at large.

Pantangelo says the female student fell, hit her head and was taken to a hospital where she was treated and released. The other student refused medical attention. The students live in New Jersey.
