2018 ASSAULTS IN INDIANAPOLIS
March 16 - Dunlap was on a blind date at Acapolco Joe's located at 365 N. Illinois St.
His stolen credit card was declined for his $40 bill and he took off.
The owner of the restaurant, Redmond, pursued him outside and the man beat him
severely until he was in critical condition.
Victim: Grant C. Redmond, 57. Court documents say he's
having difficulty talking and putting together cognitive thoughts
after having part of his skull removed to relieve pressure.
Assailant: Maurice Marcel Dunlap, 40, was apprehended and faces two counts
of aggravated battery, one count of theft an one count of attempted fraud.
Dunlap has amassed more than 25 convictions over the past 20 years, records
show, for crimes including battery on a public safety official, theft, forgery and
In another pending case, prosecutors say Dunlap attacked a 69-year-old man
and stole his cash, credit cards and phone on March 6. Dunlap beat the man and
stabbed him with a barbecue fork in a home in the 3300 block of North Meridian
Street, records say. The victim in this attack suffered bloody lips, swollen eyes,
puncture wounds on his chest, a collapsed lung and other injuries.
Assaults do not get much press, often only if it's extraordinary or involves a well known individual.
None the less, here are a few that I found in the local news.
I saw a report from 2015 where Indy police reported 6,497 aggravated assaults that year.
(Aggravated mean a stronger form of assault, usually using a deadly weapon.)
April 9 - A man with a knife attacked a group of people hanging out in the grassy mall outside Central Library after they asked him to stop
playing a siren on a bullhorn. The man immediately pulled out a knife and tried to stab two of the women, coming within inches of the stomach
of a pregnant woman. Four men in their group leapt to their defense and three were injured, two seriously. Octavia Hicks said the three
injured men were her cousins and one was seriously hurt when he was stabbed and slashed in the stomach. Her other two cousins, she said,
were stabbed in their arms. A fourth man held Madison to await police. The suspect also accidentally stabbed himself during the fight, and
James Anderson, Jr., 26
Edward Lee Atkins, 26
Johnny Gilson, 46
Taylor George was one of the women attacked by Madison
Gary Madison, 57, Indianapolis, was preliminarily charged with three felony counts of
battery by means of a deadly weapon
July 4 - A man robbed a LaQuinta Inn near 25th Street and Post Road at about 11:45pm. The man ran into the hotel, hit the 72-year-old
female clerk in the face and ran off with the cash register drawer. He jumped into a get away car, a yellow Chevy Cobalt. The two men
were apprehended at a Marathon gas station at 42nd Street and Post Road soon after.

1 teen arrested, another identified in violent armed robbery of Indy elderly couple
October 17, 2018
One of the two teenagers wanted in the armed robbery of an Indianapolis elderly couple has been arrested and the other has been identified.
Police say 16-year-old Micah Pimentel turned himself in on Wednesday and he’s been waived to adult court.
The other suspect, 18-year-old Rahiam Shabazz, has an active warrant out for his arrest.
Detectives believe Pimentel and Shabazz forced their way into the elderly couple’s home in the 1100 block of Nanwich Ct. on Sept. 25.
Once inside, police say the suspects struck the 76-year-old wife in the head before tying her and her husband up. The suspects then fled the
scene in the couple’s silver Jeep, which police say was later recovered.
The wife suffered severe bruising to her arms, neck and face when the crooks repeatedly hit her. Once authorities responded to the home,
she was taken an area hospital in stable condition.
After the crime, police say the teens were spotted using one of the couple’s credit cards at a local Family Dollar.
With Pimentel in custody, police are now asking the public to help them apprehend Shabazz, who should be considered armed and dangerous.

2 men found guilty of kidnapping and torturing an Indianapolis woman in 2018
Oct. 24, 2018 - Police were called to the hospital where a woman was being treated for third-degree burns
over 21% of her body, multiple facial injuries and a lacerated liver.
The woman told police that she had agreed to accept a package for Jones earlier that day. When the package
didn't arrive when expected, Jones accused her of being responsible for its disappearance.
Jones picked the woman up and took her to a residence in the 2800 block of West 29th Street. Jones called
Irving on the way "to tell him to grab tools and chairs and go to the basement."
Jones and Irving then dragged the victim into the basement and handcuffed her to a pole, according to the
release. Both men beat the victim and threw boiling water on her.
The men physically assaulted the victim until she lost consciousness. Jones and Irving then moved her to the
bathroom, forcing her to undress before throwing more scalding hot water on her. They then took her to an
unknown location on the east side where she was able to use someone’s phone to call for help.
Dec 13, 2019 - Quantavious Jones and Irving Madden were convicted of two counts of aggravated battery,
one count of kidnapping for ransom, one count of criminal confinement and one count of kidnapping
resulting in serious injury, all felonies. Both men are scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 6.
