INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 5, 2014) – Police arrested three people accused of robbing a man while he was jogging to work early Tuesday morning.

The man was jogging in the 5200 block of East 56th Street when a silver Chevy Impala stopped. Two men got out and approached him, putting a gun to the 23-year-old man’s neck and patting him down. They went through his pockets and took his backpack, stealing a cell phone, clothes and a debit card.

The men then got back in the car and left. The victim ran to a nearby Speedway at 4960 E. 56th St. and called police. His description of the vehicle helped officers find the Impala near East 56th Street and Arlington Avenue. An officer pulled the car over and initiated a traffic stop.

The victim was able to positively identify at least one of the men. Police arrested Raphael Germany, 18, and Tragejo Harris, 20. A 17-year-old juvenile was also arrested.

Police said the vehicle was reported as suspicious earlier at Thornton’s near 82nd and Dean. At that time, an officer investigated the situation and noted the car’s make, model and license plate number.

    actually if you do the research caucasions commit more violent crimes than blacks, however yes statistically speaking there are more blacks locked up and doing longer prison sentences than their white couterparts who committed the same crime and for the record your ignorant for using that kind of language. That kind of ignorance breeds hate, you are only contributing to the problem and from what it seems you are the problem

      Blacks make up 12% of the population and are responsible for around 50% of violent crimes. You are a dipshit fucktard, Renee.

      Statistics aren’t racist, they are just statistics.

    If he’s ignorant for saying “nigger”, then, what are blacks that use the same language? Doesn’t matter to me. I’ll never go to jail for being a thief, thug, Gansta, wannabe, whatever.

    Let’s talk about ignorant. How about how many years versus what reward? Ahahhahahahahahahah. At least they have the “droopy draws” look down when the fresh fish hit the lottery. Sweet young chicky stuff too.

    Bubba tear that up tonight!
