Man Reports Being Beaten, Robbed in Broad Ripple

Last updated on Monday, July 14, 2014

(BROAD RIPPLE) - It has been a week since the mass shooting in Broad Ripple. The chaos had people literally running for their lives as seven people were shot, one of them critically.

Near the intersection of Broad Ripple and College Avenues is a towering mobile security camera. It's one step IMPD is taking to stop the violence in neighborhood.

Shops were bustling with people Saturday afternoon.

Just after 1:00 am Saturday on the sidewalk near a convenience store in the 6300 block of North College Avenue, a man reports being beaten and robbed of his wallet by four suspects.

Not far from the mobile security cameras, the four men took off with $16 while the victim had to have stitches.

IMPD says it will review the policy on closing the stretch of road down Broad Ripple Avenue to vehicles on the weekends, depending on how busy the area gets with pedestrians.

City crews also went out to clean up graffiti in Broad graffiti Saturday morning, stopping at three spots, including a vacant building near the corner of 62nd and Carrollton; a fence on the east side of a vacant building in the corner of 62nd and Guilford; and a vacant building on the Monon Trail between 52nd and 54th Streets.
