Michael Turner, 57, from Alice Fisher Crescent, Kings Lynn, and Mark Cook, 43, from Craven Close in Rochford, Essex, have been charged with the same offence.
Cook has also been charged with possession of an offensive weapon.
The quartet are currently on bail pending the first hearing of the cases.
They are due to appear before South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court in Ipswich next Friday.
The three other suspects who were arrested will have no further action taken against them, a police spokeswoman said.
