INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department are investigating the armed robbery of a Carmel man, who was forced to remove his pants after being lured into an east side apartment Tuesday.

According to the police report, the 26-year-old man was driving west bound on E. Washington St. looking at properties when he said a woman in her 30’s approached his vehicle and started to speak with him. The man told authorities when he stopped his vehicle the woman got into the car and told him she was a “working girl.”

The man told police he followed the woman into an apartment located in the 4800 block of E. Washington St. After he walked in, the man reported two black males wearing hoodies walked out from another room and pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at him.

The victim said he was instructed to lie on the ground and remove his pants. The robbers fled the apartment with his pants, his keys, phone and wallet, according to the police report.

After waiting five minutes, the man walked out of the apartment and borrowed a phone to contact authorities. Police were able to find the victim’s pants in an alley behind the building, but they were unable to recover any other stolen items.

The “working girl” was described to be a white female, wearing a white tank top and blue jeans with chin-length hair. She also had a tattoo sleeve on her right arm.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
