Township police were called to Quail Run after two victims reported being robbed of their cash at gunpoint shortly before 1:40 a.m., Somerset County Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson said in a release.
Officers broadcasted a description of the men and their vehicle to surrounding agencies, and Dunellen Police stopped the suspect vehicle a short time later.
Quinton D. Parks, 30, of Plainfield and Jose I.

One of the victims had known one of the men prior to this incident, Robertson said. Parks and Lopez were held at Somerset County Jail pending a bail detention hearing.
