A 34-year-old commuter was robbed by a man with a handgun and woman with a stun gun while trying to catch a bus this morning on the Northside.This robbery took place only a couple blocks from the Governor's Mansion located at 4750 North Meridian. If someone gets robbed in that neighborhood, one of the best in the City, people have to wonder if they're safe anywhere.
The victim told police he was walking east on 46th Street toward a bus stop on Pennsylvania at 5:20 p.m. (this should be "a.m.") when he was approached by a clean-cut man who asked him the time, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report.
The victim said when he looked down at the clock on his cell phone, the inquisitor put a black 9 mm Glock handgun into his stomach and demanded money.
The victim said a woman in a hat and a rainbow pattern scarf then put a stun gun to his neck and the pair stole $3 from his pocket, his cell phone, wallet and camera.
No matter how hard Mayor Ballard tries and what statistics he uses, episodes like this ensure that crime will be a losing issue for him come this Fall.
