INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (February 3rd, 2014) – Police are investigating a home invasion on the city’s north side in which two suspects are in custody and one suspect is still on the loose.
The incident occurred in the 8300 block of Plaza Lane around 12:30 a.m. Monday morning at the Carlton Apartments.
Three men were in their apartment and were expecting another person to show up when they heard a knock at their door. When they opened the door, three black men were standing in their doorway with a gun.
The suspects ransacked the house, took some money, an iPhone, and fled on foot.
The victims called police, and police quickly caught the first suspect at the entrance of the Carlton Apartments. As police were setting up a perimeter, they found a second suspect across the street at the entrance of the Spyglass Apartments.
Police said an officer caught up with the suspect, saw that he had a gun in his right pocket. A struggle ensued and the suspect got away, said police.
After another brief pursuit, officers were able to apprehend the second suspect. He now faces charges of resisting arrest and possession of marijuana in addition to charges from the invasion and robbery.
Detectives later found that suspect’s weapon near 83rd Street and Naab Road. According to the police report, that gun was stolen from Terre Haute.
The suspects were later identified as Christopher McCloud, 18, and Larry Carroll, 20. They are facing preliminary charges of criminal confinement and robbery.
The third suspect is still on the loose.
He is described as a black male between the ages of 18-20, clean-shaven, and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with a faded logo on the front.
A similar crime happened in the Carlton Apartments last week but detectives do not think the crimes are related. The description of the suspects in last week’s home invasion doesn’t match the men arrested Monday morning.
