IMPD: Teens, 13 and 15, suspected in 4 robberies

Victim recognized teens day after she was robbed

INDIANAPOLIS - Police arrested two teenagers suspected in four separate robberies after a victim recognized them less than 24 hours after her store was robbed.

On Monday evening, Alisha Wilson alerted police to a group of juveniles that she believed had robbed her store a day earlier, officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said.

Wilson, the manager of a Domino's Pizza, said one of the three suspects held a gun to her head and got angry when he only got away with $40.

Wilson said she recognized the group after they walked by her store the next day wearing the same clothes. 

IMPD arrived after receiving the tip and stopped the group in the 7800 block of West 10th Street. Detectives took a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old into custody for questioning.

The suspects were later positively identified as the suspects responsible for four separate robberies. Police said they believe the suspects used a silver and black BB gun during the following robberies:

  • Domino's Pizza -- 7800 block of West 10th Street on Feb. 8.
  • Big Lots -- 4700 block of West 30th Street on Feb. 28.
  • Fazoli’s -- 7200 block of West 10th Street on March 8.
  • Domino’s Pizza -- 7800 block of West 10th Street on March 9.

Police said some surrounding counties were also investigating the teens for other recent unsolved robberies.
