DETROIT (AP) - A judge has ordered a trial for two off-duty police sergeants who are accused of robbing three men they suspected in the theft of a cellphone belonging to one officer's teenage daughter.

Forty-two-year-old St. Clair Shores police Sgt. Michael Notoriano and 48-year-old Detroit police Sgt. David Pomeroy face armed robbery and other charges.

Detroit District Judge Joseph Baltimore held a probable cause hearing over several days, then ruled Monday that the evidence is strong enough to send the case to trial.

Authorities say Notoriano's 16-year-old daughter and a friend biked to a Detroit gas station July 20. They say a man threw the daughter to the ground and robbed her.

Prosecutors say Pomeroy and Notoriano traced the phone to Detroit, where they confronted three other men.
