INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A woman was shot on the city's north side Tuesday morning during a residential robbery, police dispatchers said.
Officers were called to the 800 block of East 79th Street shortly before 7:30 a.m. The area is just east of North College Avenue.
Police say a family of three were inside of the home when suspects broke in.
The residence was ransacked and police say the mother was shot in the leg and foot. She was later taken to St. Vincent Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
According to a police report, a woman inside the home was also sexually assaulted. IMPD would not confirm the sexual assault, officers would only say a woman in the home had been assaulted.
The suspects were accused of taking the wife and daughter to a Regions Bank branch at 93rd and Meridian streets to get cash out of an ATM.
Police say the shooting took place back at the home.
According to officers, four or five black male suspects, one who was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, were involved.
"It's scary what can happen in your own neighborhood," said Paul Forbes, neighbor of the victims.
A 2000 Infinity I30 sedan, a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder and a 2002 tan or white van were taken during the robbery, but later located. Those vehicles are being processed to hopefully assist in the investigation.
Police say at this point, no weapons have been found.
