In the video that took place at 19th Avenue and Camelback Road, the victim got off the bus. He was followed by the same two men who boarded the bus behind him. That's when the two men "grabbed the victim from behind while one of the suspects was holding a knife." As the victim tried to pull away from the two attackers, "he was stabbed and thrown to the ground."

While he was on the ground, the two men robbed him of his backpack. The victim was able to get to his feet and run away. He survived his injuries, Rothschild said.

"I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their assistance spreading this information to the community," Rothschild said.

Police say Warren was charged with armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault, and possession of marijuana. While Ames was charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.
