INDIANAPOLIS – Four men armed with guns and wearing masks burst into a southside home early Thursday morning, waking a husband and wife while robbing their home.
The husband was pistol whipped when he attempted to stop them, according to a report from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
The men stole money, jewelry, guns, computers, TVs, an Xbox 360 videogame system and cellphones from the home in the 3100 block of Asbury Street. The incident happened around 3:30 a.m.
The homeowners said the men wore masks to cover their faces and were dressed in black. They also wore gloves and were armed, the report said. The thieves spent about an hour inside the home before leaving.
The homeowners believed a fifth man may have been serving as a lookout, the report said.
The case remains under investigation.
