Police investigate armed robbery at Sheraton Hotel

Three suspects reportedly stole half million in diamonds

Jeffersonville police say three unknown suspects robbed a man at knifepoint outside Jeffersonville’s Sheraton Hotel, at 700 W. Riverside Drive, on Wednesday morning.

The men took a bag with more than half a million dollars in diamonds, Jeffersonville Police Department Detective Charlie Thompson said. Thompson said the victim works in the diamond industry and was staying at the hotel. As he exited the building at about 11:30 a.m., a man was waiting for him in the parking lot.

Two other men were also believed to be part of the robbery.

The suspect with the knife was described as a Hispanic male in his mid-20s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with a stocky build. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt. Another suspect was a Hispanic male in his 50s. The victim was unable to clearly see the third suspect.

The men left in a black Kia sport utility vehicle. They were seen driving westbound on Riverside Drive. Thompson said the men likely knew the victim would be carrying the diamonds and targeted him in the robbery.

Police are asking anyone with knowledge of the case to immediately call JPD at 812-283-6633 or the anonymous tip line at 812-218-TIPS.
