Two Elkhart men sentenced for 2012 armed robbery

ELKHART, Ind. — Two Elkhart men received nearly 40 years in prison each in connection to an armed robbery.

Police say 20-year-old Jayzahn Creel and Earl Hogan held a woman hostage during the ordeal.

They say the men stole from her as her two young children watched in fear.

Two other defendants in the case have pleaded guilty and are waiting to be sentenced.
