At 9:10 p.m. Thursday, deputies responded to the 3000 block of Niles Street in Bakersfield for a report that a suspect had brandished a weapon.

Two men had displayed what appeared to be the handle of a handgun and demanded the victim's cell phone. The victim gave his phone to the suspects, who then ran from the area.

Gavino Castro, 22, and Eraldo Castro, 24, were arrested on suspicion of robbery, conspiracy, participating in a criminal street gang and escape.
