INDIANAPOLIS -- A northeast side dollar store was robbed twice in the span of eight hours overnight.

Police were first called to the Dollar General store located at 5450 Emerson Way around 9:00 p.m. Sunday for a report of an armed robbery.

Upon arrival, witnesses told police an unidentified male subject entered the business and pointed a handgun at them, demanding money from the store.

The suspect then fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money.

Less than eight hours later, officers were again dispatched to the Dollar General for a business alarm.

Police arrived to find the rear door was secure. Upon further inspection they found a hole in the wall leading into the business from a vacant unit to the south.

It wasn’t immediately clear what, if anything, was stolen in that incident.

Calls to the store Monday morning went straight to an automated voice message.
