UK students assaulted in New York

Two teenagers have been arrested for assaulting two students from the UK in a New York City train station.

Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo said four people were seen assaulting the 23-year-old students, a woman and a man, early yesterday in the 9th Street PATH station in New York's Greenwich Village neighbourhood.

Mr Pantangelo said 17-year-old Deon Hinnat and a 14-year-old boy were arrested on gang assault charges. Two other suspects remain at large.

The female student fell and hit her head and was taken to a hospital after the assault. She has since been released. The other student refused medical attention.

The students live in New Jersey.
