SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Police say they’ve charged two brothers with beating two men who say they were attacked after intervening on behalf of a homeless person being verbally harassed on a Syracuse street.

Officials say Wednesday that 18-year-old Nouman Khan and 20-year-old Hamza Khan, both of Binghamton, were charged with assault late Tuesday night after turning themselves in to police.

The victims, ages 29 and 30, told police they intervened when a group of five men harassed a homeless man on a downtown street late Christmas night. The two men say soon afterward the group got out of a car and beat them. One of the victims suffered a fractured skull.

The Khan brothers were released on appearance tickets and ordered to appear in city court Jan. 20. Police didn’t know if the brothers have attorneys.
