Three teens from Kitchener are facing charges in connection with an armed robbery in Brantford.

It happened over the noon hour Monday at a financial business on King George Road.

Police say three males disguised with face covers, long clothing and gloves entered the business armed with a knife and a gun, demanding money.  

A fourth suspect remained outside in a vehicle.

Employees were also ordered to the ground, then the suspects began to damage property.

One person was struck in the head by a suspect and received non-life threatening injuries.   

The suspects then fled on foot after stealing personal property belonging to the victims, but were later tracked down by patrol officers, the emergency response and K9 unit.

Officers seized the property that was stolen, a BB gun and knife.

The boys - 15, 16 and 17 - face charges including robbery, use of a firearm while committing an offence and weapons dangerous.

Police are still looking for the fourth suspect, who was driving a white pick-up truck.
