STOCKTON, Calif. - A 23-year-old man was arrested for allegedly attacking his brother Sunday, and his girlfriend was arrested moments later when she tried to help him escape, say police.

Robinson and White both tried to flee the scene but were captured, said police.
White was arrested on charges of battery and being a parolee at large.
Robindson was arrested on charges of resisting arrest and lynching.
