Des Moines police say they arrested two men in connection with attacking four people on St. Patrick`s Day downtown.

Police released photos of the two suspects on their Facebook page. They are accused of assaulting two men and two women near the Third Street entrance to the Metro Lofts.

All four victims were treated for minor injuries.

Police say they were able to identify the men last Tuesday after multiple people called in with tips, and the men themselves actually turned themselves in to police.

Anthony Evangelista and Nathan Connolly were both cited with assault causing bodily injury and disorderly conduct.
