CARMEL — The Carmel Police Department is looking for two suspects who attacked a woman when she went out to her car to go to work Thursday morning.

Police say the robbery happened at about 7:30 a.m., in the 11400 block of Green Street.

The female victim said she started her car remotely from her home to warm it up while it was parked in the driveway. When she went to her car to leave for work, she was approached by a man dressed in all black carrying a gun. She said she also saw another man rummaging through her car.

The suspects stole cash from the center console of the car and pistol whipped her two or three times before they left southbound on Green Street in a white passenger car. The woman was hospitalized for her injuries.

The victim has described the suspects as follows:

Black male, 5-foot-8, early 30s, average build, wearing a black coat, black pants, black shoes and a full-face black ski mask. This suspect was carrying a black handgun.

Black male, 6 feet tall, mid to late 20s, skinny, wearing either an orange or red coat and an orange knit hat, possibly wearing a surgical COVID-19 mask. No weapon was observed with this suspect.

The Carmel Police Department is asking for residents near the area of the robbery to check their camera systems for potential video evidence. Anybody with any information should contact Detective Scott Long at 317-571-2500 or
