Police: Three armed men targeting specific Indy neighborhood for robberies

INDIANAPOLIS - A group of three men believed to be tied to recent violent robberies has struck again, attacking a homeowner early Tuesday on Indy’s northwest side.

Indianapolis police (IMPD) said the newest robbery happened just after 1 a.m. in the area of Georgetown Road and 56th Street. Georgetown Road between 46th and 47th streets was home to several armed robberies early Monday morning in which the victims were whipped with pistols.

Now, the total number of robberies in that area is up to four in two days, all during overnight hours and all involving a group of three armed men.

Tuesday morning, a homeowner told police three men attacked him as he was going into his home in Laurel Oak Place, a subdivision off 56th Street near Georgetown Road.

The victim said the three men ambushed him, stole some items and sped off in their car. He wasn’t injured, and police said his description of the robbers matches that of the group of men behind Monday’s three robberies.

IMPD said the three robbers have not yet been caught.

Investigators did set up a perimeter around the armed robberies Monday in order to track them down, but did not have success in finding them.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to report it to police at 317-327-3811 or report information anonymously via Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477 (TIPS). Tips may also be texted with "INDYCS" to 274637.
