An American tourist staying in Ashkelon was mugged by two local men Sunday night after they offered to walk him back to his hotel in the city.

The two assailants managed to make off with the man’s phone and wallet, but were arrested shortly afterwards by police who had been given a description of the two men.

Southern District police said the two men were Ashkelon natives in their 20s.

Police said they would seek a remand extension for both men as they continue to investigate the alleged robbery.
