Two Vancouver men pleaded not guilty Friday to uttering racial slurs and attacking two other men June 20 in Water Works Park.

Daniel Williams, 31, and Jedehiah Miller, 30, were charged with second-degree robbery.

Their trial is scheduled for Aug. 19. Both men remain in custody at the Clark County Jail.

Williams and Miller are accused of using a racial slur as they kicked and punched one of the men, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Williams allegedly took the man's backpack and wallet before he and Miller fled.

After their arrest, a Clark County sheriff's deputy found $3 in Miller's mouth, according to the affidavit.
