SAO PAULO (AP) — Police say they have arrested 16 Colombians for allegedly assaulting two Brazilians in the World Cup host city Belo Horizonte.

A statement on the police department's website says the 16 allegedly threatened the victims with knives and were arrested Wednesday morning.

Phone calls to the department seeking additional details about the alleged assault went unanswered.

The website also reported that two other Colombians were arrested in Belo Horizonte Monday night on suspicion of stealing a vuvuzela horn from an American tourist.
