CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

Two Southern Illinois University students are arrested following an armed robbery in Jackson County early Saturday morning.

Just after midnight, Jackson County deputies responded to a report that two people at a mobile home park off Warren Road just outside Carbondale had been robbed at gunpoint.

The suspects were described as two black men with black clothing and one was wearing a mask. Deputies say both suspects had guns and were last seen leaving the scene of the robbery in a maroon four door vehicle.

Around 1:44 a.m., Carbondale Police spotted a vehicle that matched the description. Officers pulled the car over and arrested the two men inside.

Gregory Antoine, 18, of Chicago and Joseph Newman, 18, of Chicago were arrested on Jackson County warrants and are now charged with armed robbery, underage possession of alcohol and illegal transportation of alcohol.

A search of SIUC's Online People Finder lists Gregory K. Antoine and Joseph A. Newman as freshman at SIU.

The men are being held at the Jackson County Jail.
