INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (January 30, 2014) – IMPD is investigating a home invasion on the city’s north side that forced St. Vincent Hospital to go on lockdown.
Around 1:45 a.m. Thursday, a man was parked in his vehicle outside his apartment in the 2400 block of Plaza Drive when police said a white male suspect approached him with a handgun.
The suspect forced the victim, Bisi Alex, into his apartment and stole various items.
The suspect then forced Alex back into his mini-van and ordered the victim to drive to an ATM at 71st Street and Michigan Road to withdraw cash.
The victim’s card malfunctioned and no cash could be withdrawn, police said.
The suspect learned Alex’s brother lived nearby on Bridgewood Court, so he forced the victim to drive there.
The suspect forced open the Bridgewood Court apartment door and held the victim’s brother and his wife at gunpoint.
The suspect then forced all three victims back into Alex’s mini-van and made them drive to another ATM near 86th Street and Township Line Road.
Once again, no money could be retrieved.
The suspect ordered the victims to drop him off near St. Vincent Hospital.
The victims then returned to the Bridgewood Court location and called police.
St. Vincent hospital is currently on a lockdown as a precaution, but IMPD said no one is in danger.
