IMPD is investigating an armed robbery involving an 8 or 9-year-old suspect on the city’s northwest side Tuesday night.

The victims, a husband and wife, were unloading groceries outside their apartment when they were approached by two young males demanding their belongings.  The husband was holding their infant daughter at the time.

The victims state that one of the males was very tall, around 18 years of age, while the other was very short and young – around the age of 8 or 9.

The couple was held at gunpoint by the older suspect while the robbery took place.  The pair then fled on foot with a cell phone, wallet and purse.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 317-262-TIPS.
