Police Investigating Armed Robbery at Riedmiller Avenue Home

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Fort Wayne police are investigating a Wednesday morning robbery that happened at a home on Riedmiller Avenue.

According to police, an officer arrived on the scene around 7:30 a.m., Wednesday. A woman said that she was robbed by three teenagers. She told the officer that at approximately 7:05 a.m., she heard a knock on her door. She asked who it was and a male replied by saying that he missed the school bus and wanted to use her telephone. She opened the door and gave him her cellphone. She then stated that he walked into her living room without permission. She told him to stop and that’s when two other teenagers entered her home. She said one suspect had a gun tucked into his waistband, while he was holding onto with his hand.

They took her prescription medications, laptop, and television. They then left scene.  

The victim described the suspect who knocked on her door as black, approximately 17-years-old, with an “afro” hairstyle and a short, thin build. She described another suspect as black, around 17-years-old, with a very short, thin build. The third suspect is described as black, about 17-years-old, with a dark completion and stocky build.

The officer did find a pill bottle outside of the victim’s home on the ground, which had apparently been dropped. The officer collected the bottle and placed it into evidence for fingerprints.
