Grande was struck from behind before officers say they stole Grande’s Louis Vuitton bag with his iPhone, AirPods, sunglasses and wallet.
Grande was not injured.
The suspects were caught when they tried to use Grande’s credit card at a nearby smoke shop, police said.
They were charged with robbery, grand larceny, unlawful use of a credit card, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of stolen property, menacing and harassment.
