 The incident happened around 3 a.m. Monday in the 5900 block of North Tryon Street.

The victim ran and flagged down two men in a car. They got out of the vehicle and chased the suspects. Police say the men gave a detailed description of the suspects, which allowed officers to find them soon after.
Ernest Dorsett, 16, and Jason Currington, 19, were arrested at North Tryon Street and Arrowhead Drive. Both are charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery.
