Five men from Windsor are facing charges after a robbery in Chatham.

Chatham-Kent police say that just before 2am Monday morning they were called to a break and enter in progress at an apartment complex on Merritt Avenue in Chatham.

Four men, wearing disguises, attempted to gain entry into an apartment while carrying a firearm.

Minor damage was caused to the patio screen door. No one was injured and the men fled the area as the homeowners called police.

Through investigation, police learned that a fifth man was waiting in the vehicle and that this was not a random act of violence.

About an hour later, officers located the vehicle and the men in a parking lot in Chatham. Seized from the vehicle were balaclavas and a black air soft hand gun.

Two 18-year-old men and two 19-year-old men, all from Windsor, were arrested and charged with robbery and firearm related offences. A 16-year-old Windsor youth, was also arrested and charged with the same offences.

All five men were transported to the court-house pending a bail hearing.
