IMPD: IPS teacher attacked, robbed at gunpoint at school

Robbers stole teacher's car, wallet, police say

INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis Public Schools elementary teacher was robbed at gunpoint by two men as he walked to his car to go home after school Wednesday.

About 7 p.m., police were dispatched to Francis Scott Key Elementary School at 3920 N. Baker Dr. on reports of an armed robbery.

When police arrived, the 23-year-old teacher told them that two men approached him as he was packing up his car to go home.  One man jumped out from behind the dumpster and the other man walked up to him from a nearby wooded area.

The teacher said one of the men pointed a gun at him and took his keys, cellphone, lunch box and wallet, before ordering him to get on the ground away from his car.

As the teacher was crawling on the ground, both men jumped in his 2012 blue Honda Civic and drove away.

Detectives described the robbers as black men wearing hooded-sweatshirts with red bandanas covering their mouths.

Police asked anyone with information about the armed robbery to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
