Two 17 Year Old Females Charged In Connection With Robbery; Lured Victims Over The Internet

Two 17-year-old females from Evansville are now facing a Level 2 felony count of Inducing and Aiding Robbery Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury and a Level 3 felony count of Inducing and Aiding Robbery Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.

The charges stem from an incident this past May in Bretzville that injured two local men.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department says Alyissa Hawkins and Emily Bell, both 17, and both from of Evansville, were arrested Tuesday in Vanderburgh County.  Because of the nature of the crimes, state law requires both will be tried as adults in Dubois County.

DCSD says in the early morning hours of May 23rd, deputies were called to a home in the 5000 block of Indiana 162 on the report of a robbery and assault.

DCSD says two men who live at the residence were there with two women they met through the internet.  The four of them were on the front porch of the home when they were approached by two black males.

It was then one of the Bretzville men was struck on the back of his head with a baseball bat.  DCSC says the second black male pulled out a shotgun and demanded money from the second Bretzville man. Sometime during the robbery, the second Bretzville man was also struck in the face and arm with the baseball bat.

The two males from Bretzville were transported to Memorial Hospital in Jasper.  DCSD says the man struck in the head was lifeflighted to Evansville; both have since been released from the hospital.

DCSD says their investigation into the incident continues as they are still searching for the two black male suspects.
