An attempted robbery Monday in Nelsonville has two behind bars.

Athens County Sheriff Pat Kelly says 39-year-old Lisa Wisor devised a plan to rob an acquaintance and take his prescription medication and any money he had on him.

Sheriff Kelly says the victim was riding in Wisor's van when she pulled off the road, pretending to have vehicle problems.

24-year-old Tyler Brown was waiting in the bushes and wearing a mask.

Authorities say when the victim got out, Brown attacked him with mace and punched him in the face.

The victim got away and reported the incident to the Athens County Sheriff's Office.

Wisor and Brown were transported to regional jail and charged with robbery - a second degree felony.

The victim's identity isn't being released at this time and the investigation continues.
