INDIANAPOLIS -- Police have made arrests on "several suspects" of an armed home invasion/robbery on the east side. 

The robbery happened at around 7 a.m. Thursday, near the intersection of 24th Street and Arlington Avenue.

Police say a mom and at least two children were home when three armed men kicked down the front door and took several TVs. Police originally said four men entered the home, but now believe it was three men.

A 2-year-old was hurt, but was checked out at the scene and is expected to be OK. The child wasn't taken to the hospital.

Police arrested at least three people near the 1100 block of Keystone Avenue after a short foot chase.

The rest of the family wasn't physically injured, but was shaken up.
