INDIANAPOLIS - A man who thought he was going to an Indianapolis residence for a romantic meet-up is now in the hospital in serious condition after a group of people beat him with bats, stripped him and robbed him.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) said at roughly 1 a.m. Thursday, a call came in from a woman who answered her door (at a home in the 2800 block of Tindall Street - see map below) after she heard pounding on it. She found a man who was naked, bloody and barely standing, and she immediately called 911.
Investigators said the man had gone to a nearby home, reportedly to meet up with a woman. But when the man got there, four people beat him up with more than one baseball bat. The group stripped him of his clothing and robbed him.
Police said the man's strength ran out as soon as he got help from the neighbor who called 911. He was unconscious by the time EMS crews took him to Eskenazi Health, and he is now listed in serious condition.
Police have four suspects in custody, and they are being questioned.
