Four charged with armed robbery in Woodstock

(WOODSTOCK) Four men have been charged with the armed robbery of a home during a drug deal Monday afternoon in northwest suburban Woodstock.

The robbery was reported in the 1100 block of North Madison Street at 3:30 p.m., according to Woodstock police.

The two victims — a 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy — gave police a description of four suspects and their vehicle, a statement from police said.

Officers found the vehicle “in the immediate area” and took all four men into custody, police said.

The victims had arranged the sale of a small amount of cannabis, according to police. During the transaction, one of the suspects pulled out what looked like a firearm and stole about 3 grams of pot and tried to steal the victims’ cellphones.

A pellet gun matching the description of the one used in the robbery was found in the car’s glove compartment, police said.

Alexander J. Robson, 19, of Woodstock; Aaron W. Wordlaw, 25, of Huntley; Jeremy G. Stokes, 24, of Huntley; and Nicholas A. Sanfilippo, 20, of Huntley, are each charged with aggravated robbery.

Sanfilippo is also charged with resisting a peace officer, a misdemeanor, for resisting officers trying to put him in a temporary holding cell at the police department, the statement said.

All four remain in custody at the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility.
