ELKHART, Ind. -- Robbing, kidnapping and beating a 68 year old man could put an Elkhart man in prison for 150 years.

According to our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth, the guilty verdicts were handed down Wednesday for Tyrone Winkleman, 34.

Winkleman faked a seizure last July, outside the Budget Inn in Elkhart, to attract the attention of a 68 year old man and then kidnapped him.

He drove the victim to an ATM, forcing him to withdraw money.

Winkleman is also a suspect in a separate robbery that same day at an Elkhart salon.

He's accused of threatening an employee and customer with a knife, and taking money from their purses.
