A mother and toddler in Indianapolis survived a scary home invasion on Sunday.

The armed robbery happened in broad daylight near 38th Street and High School Road on the city’s west side.

It all began with a knock on the door. While holding onto her 1-year-old son, Claudia Hernandez found herself ambushed by 3 armed thieves in her doorway, just before dinner time.

“I just got freaked out. I didn’t want nothing to happen to my son,” said Hernandez.

Claudia says that after they forced their way into her apartment, the suspects stole two of the family’s televisions. An expensive watch, cell phone, and computer was also taken

Claudia had only one thought the entire time.

I just hoped they didn’t do anything to my son. I didn’t care what they did to me as long as they stayed away from my son,” said Hernandez.

Claudia says two of the three robbers appeared to be in their mid-teens and it was a young female suspect who actually held the gun in her son’s face, while the other two men looted her apartment.

She had the gun pointed at my son and the gun pointed at me. She told me to shut up,” said Hernandez.

The suspects took a number of trips in and out of the apartment, carrying away electronics over the course of several minutes. There is a security camera outside the building, however, employees at the complex wouldn’t say whether the surveillance equipment recorded the crime.

Claudia hopes the suspects are caught before any other innocent people fall victim.

“I want them to get caught. They have to pay for what they did,” said Hernandez.

No arrests have been made in the case thus far. Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
