INDIANAPOLIS – Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department responded to the area of Washington Street and Lynhurst Drive to assist a 13-year-old robbery victim Monday. The robbery occurred just before 4:00 PM near the Taco Bell. The suspects took the victim’s shoes and his backpack.
