SOUTH WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

Two men face charges for a robbery that happened at a wildlife sanctuary in South Windsor.

Police said they arrested 18-year-old Romario Robinson and Jamal Butler, 19, for the crime.

They said they attacked a man back in July at the sanctuary on Niederwerfer Road.

Officers said the victim had been smoking marijuana with friends when they encountered Robinson and Butler. Both suspects were said to be known to the victim.

Robinson and Butler allegedly attacked the victim and took his iPhone, wallet and belt. They tried to take the man's watch, but broke it in the process, according to police.

Both fled and the victim was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Arrest warrants were obtained.

Police charged Robinson and Butler with second-degree robbery, third-degree assault, forth-degree larceny and second-degree criminal mischief.

Both were held on a $250,000 bond and scheduled to face a judge on Monday.
