Roommates accused of stealing man's iPhone

Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies arrested two men on Tuesday for allegedly assaulting a man and stealing his iPhone.

It happened around 5:30 pm in the 6600 block of Abrego Road in Isla Vista.

Sheriff's officials say the victim, who suffered minor injuries in the attack, was able to give deputies a description of the two men.

Deputies located one of the suspects, Starrr Martin, 21, of Virginia, nearby and arrested him. The other suspect was also located nearby, but when deputies tried to arrest him, they say he fought back and took off running.

After a 30 minute chase, Aaron Cuthbert, 18, of Palmdale, was taken into custody.

Sheriff's officials say the Martin and Cuthbert are roommates and Santa Barbara City College students. Martin faces charges of robbery and conspiracy. Cuthbert is facing charges of robbery, conspiracy, resisting arrest, and giving false information to a peace officer.
