Guam - Three people have been charged in connection with the robbery of two tourists. Joshua Mateo Munoz and Pirrelli Flores face charges of aggravated assault and robbery while Chris Tedtaotao is charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution.

On Friday, two women reported to police that they were tackled from behind and knocked to the ground as two men robbed them of their purses and fled on foot.  One woman sustained a concussion.  Police located the suspects and Munoz later admitted that they'd been attending the Agat Mayor's Office's Christmas party when he and Flores decided to smoke the drug Ice as well as marijuana. 

Court documents state Flores and Munoz agreed they would rob someone in Tumon.  Tedtaotao was arrested after he allegedly lied to police about being with Flores to give him an alibi.
