LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two brothers who pose for photos for money on the Strip are accused of robbing a tourist.

The Las Vegas Sun reported Saturday that Leonard and Rashad Richardson face one count each of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

The siblings regularly appear on the Strip only wearing camouflage pants and take pictures for tips.

According to charging documents, they approached a woman and her friend Aug. 28.

The woman says the men demanded $20 after taking two photos and one grabbed her by the arm when she tried to walk away after paying $10.

She told police she felt coerced.

Police later arrested them.

The brothers are released on bail and set to appear in court in December.

Police say they are closely monitoring street performers.
