Kathy Whyte/ WNBF News

City of Binghamton Police are cautioning people to be aware of their surroundings when walking at night.

The caution comes after two teens were arrested in connection with several robberies and assaults downtown and on the west side over the past few days.

16 year olds Anastasia Wells of Binghamton and Shatalaza Simmons of Delaware are charged with felony robbery.

Police allege the two are part of a group of up to ten young people who have approached pedestrians downtown and on the west side at night and assaulted or robbed them.

Police say no weapons had reportedly been involved.

The incidents happened on Henry and State Streets as well as around Seminary Avenue and Leroy Street.

Detectives also encourage people not to walk alone at night if possible.

Anyone with information about the incidents can contact Binghamton Police at (607) 772-7076.
