NORWALK - A pair of men was charged Monday with multiple felonies for two separate early morning muggings.

Authorities say Michael Preston, 22, and Cheikh Seye, 23, drove along roads looking for potential victims walking alone. Police were able to catch the two suspects thanks to descriptions of the getaway vehicle from the victims.

A loaded gun and stolen property were allegedly found in the vehicle. Police say masks and bandanas described by the victims were also discovered.

Seye has a pending case related to drug charges. Preston is on probation for robbery. Due to their criminal histories and the gun charge, bail for each has been set at $500,000.
