Three men were arrested early Tuesday morning about 30 minutes after they allegedly assaulted a man and stole a backpack, cell phones and wallets from several people in the middle of Circle Drive in St. Charles.
Christopher D. Hunn, 18, of St. Charles, Graylen Noldon, 19, and Dirrell Taylor III, 19, of St. Louis, were each charged with three counts of first degree robbery.
According to Lt. Dave Senter, spokesman for St. Charles Police Department, the three men met with four people who had agreed to buy heroin from them.
At least one of the victims knew some of the suspects and one of the suspects wanted to retaliate against a victim who had left him "stranded" out of town days earlier, according to police.
The suspects assaulted one victim and stole backpack, cell phones and wallets from all four victims. Additional charges may be coming, Senter said.
Someone called in the assault to police who were able to locate the suspects at the Courtland Ridge Apartment complex about 30 minutes after the incident occured.
Police recovered a handgun and the stolen property.
Bond was set at $50,000 for Hunn, and bond amounts have yet to be established for the other two men charged.
