Two suspects were arrested in the severe beating and robbery of an East Palo Alto man early Sunday, police said.

Officers arriving at the 2100 block of Addison Avenue at about 1:55 a.m. after a fight was reported found a 46-year-old East Palo Alto man severely beaten and bleeding from his face, police said.

The victim told officers the suspects — later identified as East Palo Alto residents Leonel Contreras, 19, and Mauricio Contreras, 18 — had fled the area after stealing his wallet.

The victim is expected to survive his injuries, police said.

A police investigation led officers to a home in the 2100 block of Ralmar Avenue, where officers detained the two suspects, police said.
