TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A man has his pants back after he was pistol-whipped and robbed of them in Tampa yesterday.

Police say two men -- one 17, the other 18 -- were standing outside when three men with guns ordered them into an apartment.

Once inside, the robbers demanded money and forced the 18-year-old to hand over his pants.

As they fled by car, the robbers rammed into a police cruiser, but kept going, until the driver lost control and ended up stuck in the ditch.

The three took off on foot, but police caught two.

Arnez Jernigan and Kingsley Aguta have been arrested and charged in the crime. Police are still looking for the third robber.

Two guns and the victim's pants were found inside the car.
