If the allen is metric, see if an english size may still get some bite or Vice Versa if english. If you can find one close and gently tap into hole with hammer, grab with a vice grip or adjustable wrench, down as close to axle as possible. you may get it to pop free. something like these....

Here's a better view of this product. I have one at home and it's a very useful tool.
