INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (September 12, 2014) – A woman was injured after a residential robbery in a senior citizens community on the west side.

The robbery occurred in a community near the intersection of North Girls School Road and Rockville Road on Friday at approximately 12:30 a.m.

According to police, a homeless man asked a woman to make him a sandwich, a request he has apparently made in the past.

The male suspect came into the woman’s apartment. He told her to give him money, but she refused to do so.

The suspect then cut the woman’s arm with a razor blade several times.

He took $80 from the victim’s purse, and he told her not to call police or he would come back and kill her before running away.

IMPD sent out a K-9 unit to search for the man.

The female victim was not taken to hospital.
