Two Elizabethtown men accused of attempting to rob a North Mulberry Street gas station late last year have been indicted into Hardin Circuit Court.
Chase A. Dunaway, 19, and Nathaniel J. Restivo, 21, were indicted on charges of complicity to commit first-degree robbery.
The two men were arrested Dec. 7 after Elizabethtown Police Department responded to Plaza 94 at 2022 N. Mulberry St. in reference to a robbery, according to police.
An employee told police “two tall males wearing all back with bandannas covering their faces” ran into the gas station and said, “We’re here for the money,” police reported.
The grand jury’s indictment alleges Restivo was armed with a deadly weapon during the incident and “used or threatened the immediate use of physical force” upon the employee.
After Elizabethtown officers released information about the robbery over the radio, a Hardin County Sheriff’s deputy spotted Restivo and Dunaway walking along Tunnel Hill Road and noticed they matched the description of the robbery suspects, police said.
The two men are lodged at Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of $25,000 cash bonds. They appeared Tuesday for arraignment in Hardin Circuit Court.
According to court records, Restivo and Dunaway did not have a criminal history in Hardin County prior to the alleged incident.
An indictment is an allegation, not proof of guilt. The defendant is innocent until proven guilty.
