HOUMA, La. -- Two teenagers were arrested by Houma Police for the November attack on a disabled man, according to police.

Tre Paul Britton, 17, and Drake Mobley, 19, both of Houma, were arrested by police Monday for armed robbery and second-degree battery, police said. Britton also had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear for aggravated flight from an officer.

Police arrested the teenagers after receiving a tip through Crimestoppers.

On Nov. 11, a 26-year-old disabled man attacked and robbed of his cell phone and wallet near the intersection of Acadian Drive and Glynn Avenue. The victim suffered 'moderate' injuries to his face in the assault, police said.

Britton and Mobley were taken to the Terrebonne Parish Jail, awaiting trial or bond. Police say the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are likely.
