Police are looking for two of four muggers accused of jumping, then robbing a Bronx man.

Police collared Michelle Lee, 21, and Treyvon Roberts, 19 Wednesday for the January 31, 2014 assault and mugging of a 47-year-old victim.

Both are facing robbery charges, and Lee was also charged with assault, grand larceny, menacing, petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
