police lights crime

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Police in South Bend said a man who tried to rob a school bus driver got away without any cash.

Police spokesman Capt. Phil Trent tells the South Bend Tribune the bus driver had parked at a fast food restaurant near Washington High School and was waiting to pick up students from a field trip Monday morning.

That’s when a man entered the bus. Police say the driver told the man to leave, but instead the man frisked the bus driver and took his wallet.

Trent says the bus driver didn’t have any cash, so the suspect left.
