Robber gets wallet, not cash, from school-bus driver

SOUTH BEND – Police said a man who tried to rob a school-bus driver got away without any cash.

South Bend police spokesman Capt. Phil Trent told 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 said the driver told the man to leave, but instead the man frisked the bus driver and took his wallet.

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