Police: Woman drives from Chicago to Indy to fight teen over video game
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (March 29, 2016)– Police say a woman drove to Indy from her Chicago home and beat up a teenager after accusing her of stealing a video game.
On Monday around 8:15 p.m., police say the woman kicked in the front door of a home in the 1900 block of North Medford Avenue, entered the home and went to the second floor.
The woman accused a 15-year-old girl in the home of stealing a video game from her home in Chicago. She challenged the teen to a fight and the girl accepted.
The teen ended up with a bloody nose and swelling on the side of her face and head. Her finger was also cut from a glass table that was broken during the fight.
The woman took a Playstation 4 game console and a “Call of Duty” game before she left.
The teen was taken to Methodist Hospital by her grandfather.
As officers investigated the fight inside the home, they smelled unburnt marijuana. One of the five children in the home went to the bathroom after officers arrived and they heard the sound of several flushings.
Police contacted the Department of Child Services due to several prior cases.
At this time, no arrests have been made in connection with this case.
