Elkhart, Ind. A Nappanee man admitted to robbing an Elkhart convenience store while in court this week.

That’s according to our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.

During a Thursday court appearance, Joshua Bagwell, 19, pleaded guilty to robbery causing bodily injury. He agreed to a deal consisting of 10 years in prison and six years probation.

Bagwell was accused of robbing the Neighborhood Convenience Store on Oakland Ave. in Elkhart.

According to official documents related to the case, two men reportedly entered the store on the evening of June 15, 2013. One of them grabbed the store owner while the other took around $2,000 dollars.

The owner told police he tried to scare the men off with a golf club, only to have them grab it and use it against him. He suffered injuries to his neck, legs, and chest.

Bagwell turned himself in to the Nappanee Police Department a week after the robbery. He has since helped police identify three other suspects in the case: Justin Kearney, Andrew Ormanovich, and Kayla Losee.

His sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 24.
