Four men have been charged in an armed robbery at the Pine Tree Circle and Hidden Lake Drive area in Buffalo Grove.

Kenneth Green, 20, of Arlington Heights; Robert Green, 19, of Arlington Heights; Jacobe Umoren, 20, of Vernon Hills; and John Mares-Coleman, 18, of Buffalo Grove, have all been charged with one count of robbery and one count of aggravated robbery.

On June 6 in the evening, the group threatened an unidentified person with a firearm, Buffalo Grove Police Cmdr. Jim Newton said. They used force to take $700 from the person, who sustained minor injuries but wasn't taken to a hospital.

Green, Green, Umoren and Mares-Coleman are all at the Lake County jail held in lieu of $50,000 bond. A preliminary court date is July 3.
