ARLINGTON -- Two more ice cream vendors were assaulted and robbed Monday, bringing the total number of victimized vendors in East Arlington to four in two days, according to authorities.

One is described as thin and 5 feet, 9 inches to 6 feet tall. The second suspect is described as about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 250 pounds, wearing a white T-shirt and jeans. They were seen leaving in an early 1990s light blue Chevrolet Cavalier with Texas license plates.

The two robberies on Monday took place at 4:20 p.m. at 1834 Edna St., and at 5:10 p.m. at 610 Hillcrest Drive. The victims, both men, ages 30 and 23, were taken to Medical Center of Arlington with non-life-threatening head injuries. Their identities were not released.

On Sunday, 27-year-old Jaime Camacho was struck with a piece of metal about 4:50 p.m. while working in the parking lot of Carl Knox Jr. Park at 1200 Susan Drive, police said. Less than an hour later, 55-year-old Pablo Lopez was attacked with a metal object while working at the Olympic Club Apartments at 605 Jackson Square Drive.
