Trio of men rob Hamilton County home at gunpoint

HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. - The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office is investigating after three men trespassed into a home and robbed the residents inside.

The sheriff's office said just after 3 a.m. Thursday, five people were in a home in the 20000 block of Freemont Moore Road (West 17th Street) when three men walked in the unlocked front door of the home.

One of the men who was trying to keep his face covered reportedly had a black handgun and told the five victims to give up their cellphones and money.

The victims said they were ordered to get on the ground while the men ransacked their house. No one was hurt in the exchange.

The thieves took cellphones, electronics, a saxophone, a camouflage bullet-proof vest and a purse containing a debit card, investigators said.

The victims said the three men left after warning them not to call the police.

Descriptions of the robbers

Investigators said they are now looking for three black men in their late teens or early 20s. They were all roughly 5 feet 7 inches tall. The man who held the gun looked to weigh roughly 130 pounds, and had a thin build and a noticeable scar running across his nose. He was wearing dark, baggy clothing and a black beanie-style hat.

The second man was about the same weight and size, but was wearing a clown mask, black hoodie and gray sweats.

The third man was the same height, but was described as weighing roughly 150 pounds. He was wearing a devil mask and dark baggy clothes.

Anyone with information on this crime should call 317-776-9887 or 317-773-1282.
