I cannot confirm the robberfly, but for the acalyptrate there are too few details visible to be certain about the family. Milichiidae are often associated with asilid prey (usually honeybees) but in most cases these are Desmometopa species, that can be recognized by a black M on the frons. That is clearly absent here.
