Police investigating attempted robbery

Elkhart County police are investigating an attempted robbery that occurred Monday around 10:45 p.m. in the 18000 block of C.R. 142, near New Paris between C.R.s 29 and 42.

According to police, a man said he was driving on C.R. 142 and stopped for a Hispanic male who had positioned himself in the roadway. A red-colored Chevrolet truck then stopped at the scene and a second Hispanic male got out of that vehicle.

Police said both Hispanic males approached the driver while armed with a large, machete-style knife and demanded money. The victim did not give the assailants any money and was able to drive away. The driver was unhurt in the incident.

One of the robbers was described as being in his late 20s or early 30s, wearing a black sweatshirt and skinny blue jeans, having dark “buzzed cut” hair, long sideburns and a goatee. The robber has teardrop tattoos near his left eye and the number “13” tattooed near his right eye, according to police.

The other robber was described as wearing a blue bandanna over his nose and mouth and wearing a blue sweatshirt, black shorts and white knee-high socks.

The vehicle was described as a red-colored 1990s-model Chevrolet 1500 extended cab truck with a cracked windshield.

Anyone with information about this crime can contact the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department Detective Bureau by calling 574-891-2300, or by clicking on the “Submit a Tip” button located at the top of the ECSD Facebook page.

Police said Pemberton failed to maneuver his 2013 Chrysler Town and Country van into the next lane as he passed a Toll Road maintenance vehicle and worker doing work on the side of the roadway.
