SOUTH PORTLAND — Three men face charges of robbery and aggravated assault following a dispute on Huntress Road in South Portland late Monday and into this morning.

Police stopped a sport utility vehicle shortly after the alleged midnight assault was reported and charged the occupants in connection with the incident.

One of the men, Mekonnen Berhe, 19, who is listed as having no address but living in the greater Portland area, was charged with drug trafficking after police found $500 worth of crack cocaine in the car, according to police.

Berhe and two other Portland men, Raoul Tshiyuka, 19, and John Kanda, 19, are charged with beating up the victim and taking his backpack and cell phone.

The suspects and victim know each other and the fight supposedly broke out because of the way the victim was behaving toward women who were present, police said.

The victim was taken to the hospital but later released after treatment, police said. There was no weapon involved.
