Do you have any stats for Player 4? I would probably have folded this pre-flop as an UTG+1 raise at a full ring table at this level is usually super strong and you are going to be dominated more often than not by a higher ace. As for Player 4, I think he either has a big hand or nothing. He could have a busted hearts draw with something like KJ, KT. Or he could have something trashy like A3 which just made two pair. I think it is read dependent but I would probably fold at this point. I think we got ourselves into trouble by raising the flop but checking the turn, it makes us look weak.
