Four teenagers were charged with aggravated robbery early Saturday after they allegedly robbed a Brooklyn man at gun point, Metro police said.

The 28-year-old victim was walking through the parking lot of the Hickory Hollow Red Lobster restaurant and talking on his cell phone at 1 a.m. when he was approached by a white Toyota Avalon, police said. Several teens got out of the car and one allegedly pulled a semi-automatic pistol and demanded the Brooklyn man's belongings, according to police. The victim surrendered his wallet and phone, then he was instructed to run away.

The victim called Metro police from his hotel, and South precinct officers quickly flooded the area, police said. Within minutes, they spotted the car on Bell Road near Hickory Hollow Terrace. The four teenagers were taken into custody and identified by the victim, police said.

The four charged teenagers are: Mikel Haug, 19, of Pine Orchard Place; Andrew Cartwright, 19, of Hickory Highlands Drive; Stantore Brooks, 18, of Gannett Peak Lane; and Larance Holman, 17, of Cedarcreek Drive.

Bond for Haug, Cartwright and Brooks was set at $25,000; Holman is being held in Juvenile Detention pending a hearing.
