IndianapolisMetro Police Department detectives said two suspects forcedtheir way into a home just after 8:30 a.m. Friday morning withintentions to rob the family.
Police said two men came up to the home, in the 6100 block ofEast 21st Street, asking for jumper cables for a broken down car.They left, then later came back to the home and knocked on thedoor. That's when police said one of the suspects pulled out ashotgun and forced their way into the home, tying up two adults anda teenager.
One of the robbers hit one of the adults over the head with agun.
"Then he hit me again over the head and that was it," saidMorgan Adams. "It was lights out. I woke up to my buddy untyingme."
Police said the robbers started ransacking the house. Then, thebaby in the house made his presence known.
"And then at that point my smallest baby starts to cry," saidRonnell Griffie. "So I asked them, 'Is there any possibility thatyou can let my oldest son feed little Jaylin?' And he was like,'Yeah, dude, yeah, dude, I can do that.'"
The robber not only let Griffie's older son feed Jaylin, hewarmed the bottle himself in the microwave.
Another thing that makes this crime so unusual is how brazenit was.
It happened during broad daylight, during rush hour, on a verybusy street.
Surveillance video from a nearby business showed how busy thestreet was when the crime occurred.

It could have been deadly. It was without a doubt frighteningand it's also puzzling.
How could two men willing to be so violent, be so tender in thesame moment?
"First I thought we were dead, then I thought, 'Okay, he's anice guy, he even warms up a bottle for my child,'" said Griffie."I don't know what to think of these gentlemen. I don't have theslightest clue what to think of 'em."
Police said the suspects are considered armed and dangerous.They were described as two black males, one light skinned and theother dark skinned. The suspects were wearing dark clothing and redbandanas over their faces.
