    Two teenagers have been arrested for allegedly assaulting two students from Great Britain inside a Manhattan train station.

    Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says four people were seen assaulting the 23-year-old students, a woman and a man, early Sunday inside the Ninth Street PATH station in Greenwich Village.
    Pantangelo says a 17-year-old and a 14-year-old boy, both from New Jersey, were arrested on gang assault charges. He says two other suspects remain at large.
    The students live in Jersey City, N.J. Pantangelo says the female student fell, hit her head and was taken to a hospital. She was treated and released. The other student refused medical attention.
