St. Charles police have arrested two men and one teenage boy in connection with a Wednesday robbery on the city's west side, in which police said the trio beat up a middle-aged man and stole his wallet.

The teen is from St. Charles while the men are from Chicago.

At 7:43 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a 44-year-old man who said he had been choked and punched in the face by the group while he was walking in the 200 block of South 19th Street, police said.

During the beating, one of the the man's wallet was stolen from his back pocket, police said. The man later called his bank to cancel his stolen card, but the bank representative told him four transactions had already been made on the card at a local 7-Eleven convenience store, police said.

The same day, police arrested the following three suspects in the 1800 block of Indiana Street:

• A 16-year-old boy from St. Charles who is being charged as a juvenile.

• Deontae C. Nichols, 22, of the 2200 block of South Hamlin Street in Chicago. He was charged with robbery, theft and unlawful possession of a stolen credit card.

• Deaunta J. Taylor, 23, of the 700 block of North Springfield Avenue in Chicago. He was charged with theft and unlawful possession of a stolen credit card.

The teenager was being detained at the Kane County Juvenile Justice Center, while the men are being held on $100,000 bail at the Kane County jail.

They'll need to post $10,000 to get out of jail while their cases move through the courts.

Both men are scheduled to appear in court Nov. 1 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
