NEW YORK, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- Police in New York said an attempted mugging was foiled when one of the alleged attackers shot an alleged accomplice in the leg.

Investigators said the victims, males ages 17 and 20, were confronted by a group of eight muggers around 4 a.m. Sunday at Hunts Point Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard in the Bronx and they fled to a nearby subway station, the New York Post reported Monday.

The men refused to give the muggers any money and a member of the gang attempted to strike one of the men with a gun, but the weapon discharged and struck one of his fellow suspects in the leg.

Police said most of the muggers fled, but Randall Harvey, 20, was arrested and treated for his leg wound. Steve Boria, 16, who stayed behind to tend to his wounded friend, was also arrested.

Both men were charged with robbery, police said.
