Woman robbed in Garfield Park

October 10, 2012

An Indianapolis woman said she was beaten and robbed by two men on her way home through Garfield Park Monday night. Jennifer Kelly told police she was taking a shortcut through the park when two men jumped her from behind. One of the men held her down, she said, while the other hit her and searched for cash. The attack lasted about 10 minutes, she said. The bandits stole $10 and a pack of cigarettes. Kelly called 911 and ran after the men to see which way they went. She described one of her attackers as white, about 25 years old, with a “spiky” goatee.
