Hoffman Estates police arrested two men this week on armed robbery charges alleging they threatened a man with a kitchen knife as they stole drugs and money from him, authorities said.
Police said Thursday they arrested Abbot Aho, 19, and LeQuez Rucker, 18, both of the 700 block of Bode Circle in Hoffman Estates, and charged them each with one count of armed robbery with a dangerous weapon other than a firearm.
Authorities said they responded about 12:45 a.m. last Saturday to the same apartment complex where the suspects live after receiving a call from a resident who said he was robbed of $20 and some marijuana.
The two men fled the scene before police arrived, authorities said.
Police located the suspects and took them into custody Tuesday night, authorities said.
