INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department have confirmed that they have arrested Riccardo Hutchins, 27, in connection with the IUPUI attempted robberies last week.

Police say Hutchins forced his way into the apartment on campus and tried to rob two victims. According to the police report filed with IMPD, one victim is 19 and the other victim is 21.

They told police they heard a knock on their door, so they opened it to see what Hutchins wanted. They say Hutchins forced his way in, carrying a gun.

It was then, the victims told police they believed the gun was fake, so they fought Hutchins.

One victim was slightly hurt during that fist fight that spilled into the hallway at the apartment complex.

Police said Hutchins didn’t get away with the victims’ belongings, but did flee the scene.
