HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. -- Two people were injured during an armed robbery at a Hendricks County home early Tuesday morning.

It happened just after 1 a.m. at a home in the 2300 block of Seattle Slew Drive near 21st Street and Raceway Road.

The victim told deputies that a young female came to the door and asked to borrow a cell phone because she was having car trouble. When she had the phone, four young black men armed with guns forced their way into the home and took jewelry, cash and electronics.

The two people who were home at the time sustained minor injuries.

The Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department said they do not believe the robbery was random, but it remains under investigation.

Anyone who has information regarding this break-in is asked to contact the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department at 317-839-8700.
