Two Warren County men face charges of attempted aggravated robbery after a botched attempt to take a McMinnville Highway man’s wallet at knifepoint Friday.
According to DeKalb County Sheriff Patrick Ray, Logan Tyler Martin, 19, and Charles Robert Fults Jr., 18, both of McMinnville, drove up to a local home where the intended victim was working in his yard. Fults allegedly exited the passenger side of the vehicle and drew a knife as he approached the resident, demanding the man’s wallet.
When the victim refused, Fults reportedly got back into the vehicle, with Martin behind the wheel, and the two drove away. After the incident was reported to central dispatch, a “Be on the Lookout” (BOLO) was issued to other law enforcement agencies, and the vehicle was spotted in Warren County, where the two were arrested.
Bond for both men is set at $10,000 and they will appear in court May 19.
