PHOENIX -

Two suspects have been arrested in an attempted robbery in Phoenix that left a man and woman with gunshot wounds.

Phoenix police say 24-year-old Dwayne Phelps was taken into custody Thursday on suspicion of attempted armed robbery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. 21-year-old Jasmine Shanead Greer is being held on suspicion of conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

Police say 32-year-old Jerold Garrison was riding his bike April 18 when he saw someone trying to rob a woman.

Garrison was shot in the neck as he tried to help the 21-year-old woman, who suffered a minor gunshot wound during the attack.

"We never ever encourage our citizens to step into situations like that and then themselves become victims, but in the same breath none of us really know what we're going to do in that type of a situation, and Mr. Garrison saw that there was someone in distress and felt he had to do something to stop that," said Phoenix Police Officer James Holmes.

Police say Greer offered to sell the woman a vehicle and made arrangements to meet the victim. Police also say Phelps is related to Greer.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
