INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Authorities are investigating after a man was locked into the trunk of his vehicle after he was delivering t-shirts.

It happened Friday afternoon just before 3:30 p.m. at the Fifth Third Bank located on 101 East 38th Street when officers were dispatched to a call of a robbery.

Upon arrival, they located the victim locked into the trunk of his vehicle.

After authorities were able to free him, he stated that upon arrival to the bank he was approached by two suspects as he was removing a bag from his trunk.

The suspects then placed the victim into the trunk after he gave them the bag. The suspects then fled.

The victim sustained minor injuries from the incident.

The FBI and IMPD are working together to find the suspects. Due to the collaboration IMPD declined to talk about the case; however, the department did give tips on staying alert while at the bank.

“We encourage everyone to park in a well-lit space, don’t park in dark corners or where people can take advantage of you,” said IMPD Officer Nick Ragsdale.

Investigators have not released a description of the two suspects.
