ST. CHARLES – Two Chicago men and a St. Charles teenager were charged in a robbery that took place Wednesday evening in the 200 block of 19th Street.

Main St., he called 911.
Minutes after the robbery, officers located the three suspects matching the description made by the victim in the 1800 block of Indiana Street.
