IMPD: Man reports stabbing in woods; actually suspected of breaking into Ritter's Frozen Custard

INDIANAPOLIS - In a strange break-in report on the northwest side of Indianapolis, police said they've detained a man who reported a stabbing, but was found with glass all over him.

Indianapolis police (IMPD) said at roughly 2:30 a.m. Friday, a man called 911 to say he had been stabbed by three people in the woods. When officers headed to the area of the report, they said they noticed someone had tried to break into the Ritter's Frozen Custard on 57th Street near Georgetown Road. (See map below.)

Officers found the man who had called 911 near the Marsh Supermarket just south of the Ritter's, IMPD said. They said they found glass all over the man, and the cuts on his arms seemed to have come from glass.

IMPD said officers believe he is the one who tried to break into Ritter's, and in the process, cut himself up.

Officers said he will be OK, but he has been taken into custody. RTV6 has blurred his image above until he is identified, officially arrested and preliminarily charged.
