Police in Herndon are looking for four men they say robbed a check-cashing business on Elden Street in the town Friday afternoon.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the men may have been armed when they entered the business and took an unknown amount of money. No one was injured, and the men reportedly fled on foot.
