ELKHART — The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department is looking for two suspects in an armed robbery Tuesday night at a gas station near Simonton Lake.

At about 8 p.m., sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of an armed robbery at the Marathon Gas Station at 51451 S.R. 19. Two male suspects wearing black masks and gloves had entered the store with at least one handgun.

The suspects demanded money from the store clerk and took an undisclosed amount of cash from the cash register and cigarettes. The suspects left the store and got into a gold colored sport utility vehicle and drove away, headed westbound on Roseland Road.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects involved in this robbery as well as the vehicle that they were driving. Anyone with information should contact their local police department or the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department at 574-533-4151.
