The suspects are accused of violently robbing the elderly man around noon April 30 in the 600 block of East 69th Street as the senior entered his building.

"I picked up my bag and the next thing I knew I was being grabbed and kicked," the man told reporters.
Also it was noted:
Police said Chambers surrendered after seeing the surveillance video on television. Hopson was apprehended by a regional task force.

The men are expected in court.
