INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Police are looking for two suspects who managed to heat up a bottle for a crying baby while robbing a home Friday morning.

Indianapolis Metro Police Department detectives said two suspects forced their way into a home just after 8:30 a.m. Friday morning with intentions to rob the family.

Police said two men came up to the home, in the 6100 block of East 21st Street, asking for jumper cables for a broken down car. They left, then later came back to the home and knocked on the door. That's when police said one of the suspects pulled out a shotgun and forced their way into the home, tying up two adults and a teenager.

One of the robbers hit one of the adults over the head with a gun.

"Then he hit me again over the head and that was it," said Morgan Adams. "It was lights out. I woke up to my buddy untying me."

Police said the robbers started ransacking the house. Then, the baby in the house made his presence known.

"And then at that point my smallest baby starts to cry," said Ronnell Griffie. "So I asked them, 'Is there any possibility that you can let my oldest son feed little Jaylin?' And he was like, 'Yeah, dude, yeah, dude, I can do that.'"

The robber not only let Griffie's older son feed Jaylin, he warmed the bottle himself in the microwave.

Another thing that makes this crime so unusual is how brazen it was.

It happened during broad daylight, during rush hour, on a very busy street.

Surveillance video from a nearby business showed how busy the street was when the crime occurred.

The tape shows the two robbers going into the house, both of them armed.

It could have been deadly. It was without a doubt frightening and it's also puzzling.

How could two men willing to be so violent, be so tender in the same moment?

"First I thought we were dead, then I thought, 'Okay, he's a nice guy, he even warms up a bottle for my child,'" said Griffie. "I don't know what to think of these gentlemen. I don't have the slightest clue what to think of 'em."

Police said the suspects are considered armed and dangerous. They were described as two black males, one light skinned and the other dark skinned. The suspects were wearing dark clothing and red bandanas over their faces.

If you have any information about this case please call IMPD or
Crime Stoppers at (317) 262-TIPS.
