INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 22, 2014) — Indianapolis Metro Police were looking for a group of armed men they believe robbed two people on the west side early Saturday morning.

Police say a Dominoes Pizza delivery driver was robbed at West Lake Apartments by four or five men, carrying guns. That happened shortly after 1 a.m. He was beaten with a pistol, and his wallet was stolen, but he was able to make it  back to Dominoes Pizza in the 4500 block of Rockville Road, where he called police.

Shortly after that, in the 4500 block of Candletree Circle, another man was robbed and beaten, also by a group of several armed men.

Police believe the same suspects are responsible for both crimes. Both victims were injured and taken to Eskenazi.

If you have any information about either of these robberies, you’re urged to call police or report it anonymously to Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
