Armed robbers get away from Indianapolis GameStop with 15 Xbox One units, cash

IMPD links men to two GameStop robberies

INDIANAPOLIS - Police say two men already suspected of robbing an Indianapolis GameStop in late November may have held up another one Monday night, getting away with more than a dozen Xbox One consoles.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) public information officer Christopher Wilburn said Tuesday police need the public’s help in tracking down two men who robbed the GameStop at 3269 W. 86th St. from roughly 9:45 to 10:25 p.m. Monday.

Officers said the men, pictured in a similar GameStop robbery on Nov. 25, entered the store Monday night armed with pistols. Customers and employees reported to police that the two men forced them into the back room of the store, where their hands were zip-tied. They said they were made to lie on the floor while the men took 15 Xbox One systems and money.

Police said the gaming consoles were worth more than $8,000 altogether.

Witnesses’ descriptions of the two men matched the images attached to this story, police said. The robbery victims told police the first man was wearing a cap with a skull on it, a dark jacket, blue jeans and boots. He was reportedly armed with a black semi-automatic pistol.

The second robber was described as wearing a gray hoodie and blue jeans with “Polo-style” boots with a green stripe. He was reportedly armed with a silver revolver.

The two men also took one of the victims’ phones, stomping on it, and stole his wallet.

Police said the two men may have also robbed a Game Stop at 3778 S. East St. a few days before Thanksgiving, getting away with nine PlayStation 4 gaming systems.

Anyone with information on the men is asked to call  911 or the robbery unit at 317-327-3722, or if callers wish to remain anonymous they may call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS (8477).  Callers can also text “INDYCS” plus tip information to 274627 (CRIMES).
