Godfrey, Il. (KMOV) -- Five men, including two minors, have been charged with Mob Action after attacking three people in a parking lot outside a Godfrey, Illinois Wal-Mart on January 15.

Two of the victims told deputies they had ongoing problems with a group of people who saw them inside the Wal-Mart and began to follow them around on Sunday evening.

Police say the two victims eventually met with a family member inside the store and made him aware of the situation.  The family member then walked the victims to their vehicle in an attempt to prevent the situation from escalating.

The victims were then attacked by five males, Lucas Chestnut, 18, Jeffrey Dallas, 20, James Allenworth, 18, and two minors, as they arrived to their vehicle.  At least one of the suspects had also encountered the victims while inside the store.  No one reported any serious injuries.

Police later located the men at the residence of one of the suspects.  Bond has been set at $20,000 for each defendant.
