NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Two teenagers have been arrested for assaulting two students from Great Britain inside a New York City train station.

Four people were seen assaulting the 23-year-old students — a woman and a man — early Sunday morning inside the Ninth Street PATH station in Greenwich Village, Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo said.

Deon Hinnat, 17, and a 14-year-old boy — both from New Jersey — were arrested on gang assault charges, Pentangelo said. He says two other suspects remain at large.

The students live in Jersey City, N.J. Pantangelo said the woman student fell, hit her head and was taken to a hospital, where she was treated and released. The other student refused medical attention.
