Two men are facing charges after a man was robbed and assaulted at gunpoint while leaving work in northwest suburban Woodstock.

Police responding to a call of an armed robbery and aggravated battery at 9:12 p.m. Oct. 25 in a parking lot in the 1200 block of Davis Road found a man bleeding from the head, according to Woodstock police. He was treated at the scene by paramedics.

Police said the man was walking to his car after getting off work when he was confronted by two men. One of the suspects pointed a gun at him and demanded his cellphone. When the victim refused, the suspect hit him in the head with the butt of the gun, and the second suspect punched him. They then took the victim’s phone and wallet before leaving the area, police said.

Investigators later identified the robbers using surveillance footage and witness statements, police said.
