Two men were arrested after robbing a 66-year-old man in the Castro district Wednesday night.

Police said the 9:30 p.m. incident in the 300 block of Sanchez Street started when three suspects came up behind a man who was walking on the street, grabbed his bag, which contained fruit and a┬álaptop, and knocked him down. The three then fled southbound on Sanchez, but police soon arrested two of the suspects: Amaree Wiley (also spelled “Whiley”), 21, and┬áJamie Hughes, 19. Both men, who are San Francisco residents and were booked on suspicion of robbery and conspiracy, were no longer in custody as of Wednesday, September 20, according to jail records.

The third suspect, a black male in his early 20s, had not been arrested as of Thursday morning.

The victim, who sustained non-life threatening injuries, refused medical treatment.
