INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (September 12, 2015) – An Indianapolis man is speaking out about his frightening encounter with robbers. Police say he was beaten with a baseball bat and slammed against a wall when three men busted into his home not once, but twice in the same week.  There is still blood on the wall of 18-year-old Mandeep Singh’s apartment from the attack.

“They pulled me by my shirt from the bathroom and they hit me and then punched my head two times against the wall,” says victim Mandeep Singh.

Police say they got away with Singh’s brand new television, laptop, and $700.00. The first time the three men broke in the teen was not home. They threw a brick through the glass on his front door and ransacked his home. Singh says the same group came back the next day and he called police. The third time he was targeted; Singh was home and was beaten with a bat, slashed with a knife, and laid on the floor afraid for his life until they left.

“They hit me in the knee in a baseball bat, they punched me and they threw me over there. I lay down and then they grabbed all of my money,” says Singh.

Singh says he has never seen these men before, but fears they are going to come back again and take not only his belongings but his life.

“I am alone at home, they can do anything. They can kill me,” says Singh.

Singh’s neighbors say the area has not been troublesome in the past but are worried they could  be the next target.

“I do feel unsafe now,” says neighbor Brenda Mayorda.
