Two of the three young men who Elgin police say tried to rob a pizza delivery man last April pleaded guilty to the charges recently, court records show.

Datren Brown, 18, of Hickory Hills pleaded guilty to armed robbery and was sentenced to six years in prison, court records show. He received credit for 269 days in custody and was ordered to pay $649 in fines.

Scott Hatfield, 20, of Elgin, pleaded guilty to robbery and was sentenced to four years in prison. He received credit for four days in custody and was ordered to pay $639 in fines.

Brown and Hatfield, along with 18-year-old Devyn Dodd, of Elgin, phoned in a phony pizza order last April, prosecutors said at the defendants' bond hearing last year. When the delivery man arrived, one of the defendants pointed a pellet gun at the man's chest and ordered him to turn over his money and the pizza, prosecutors said.

Charges are pending against Dodd, who next appears in court on Jan. 28.
