Two men accused of impersonating police officers while committing robberies were arrested.

Daniel Blaylock, 24, of the 1800 block of Drexel Street in Hyattsville, and Kennedy Ventura, 20, of the 700 block of Kennedy Street NW in the District, were arrested and charged with robbery, assault and theft. 

Prince George's County Police said Baylock and Ventura approached two men, displayed police badges, assaulted them and took the victims' wallets and other items from their pockets. 

The incident took place on the 7900 block of 15th Avenue in Langley Park at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday. The suspects were arrested later that day.

Both men face preliminary hearings Aug. 9.
