The Fort Wayne Police Department responded to the report of an armed robbery to an individual in the 600 block of E. Creighton Street at approximately 1:15 p.m. this afternoon.
The victim stated that he was approached by two males both armed with handguns and robbed of his cash. During the course of the robbery the victim was pistol wiped by one of the perpetrators. The victim who was in his car during the incident stated that he at some point was able to speed away from his assailants and in doing so did in fact hit at least one of the two knocking him to the ground.
Witnesses to the incident told officers that one of the two individuals involved possibly ran to a house in the 600 block of E. Creighton Street resulting in officers securing the perimeter of the home which led to the decision to deploy our EST and CRT Teams. Once on scene consent to search the home was given by the owner, EST members entered the home and found no one inside.
This incident is being investigated by the Fort Wayne Police Department and the Allen County Prosecutors office.
