Police said the 18-year-old victims picked up Anderson and Williams and were heading west on Tower Drive when one of the alleged robbers told the man driving to turn down a gravel driveway.

Knives pulled: When the driver asked why, Anderson and Williams pulled out knives and demanded the victims' cash and belongings, according to police. The driver suffered a cut on his chin or throat during the robbery.

The young woman tried to escape but was confronted outside the car by two males wearing ski masks, police said.

When the two victims told the robbers they had nothing to give them, Anderson, Williams and the two masked men ran from the area, according to police.

The victims went to a nearby convenience store and called 911, then gave officers the names of Anderson and Williams, police said.

Investigators are in the process of confirming the identities of the two masked men, Lash said, and they also will be charged with the robbery.
