Just before 7 p.m., Winnebago County Sheriff's Department says a group of seven juvenile males were trying to get into an elderly man's home on Garver Avenue.

The man tried to keep them from coming in his door and did suffer minor injuries to his hand from trying to push them away. The group fled with $25 in change and candy that the elderly man was handing out.

All seven were located at the scene and a couple blocks away. All were charged with strong armed robbery.
