Police release sketch of suspect in Noblesville home invasion


Noblesville - Police released a sketch of a man who broke into a home in Noblesville and tied up a teenager while he robbed the place.

It happened last Saturday afternoon (Feb. 19).

Police say the teenage male was home alone in the 10000 block of Greenfield Avenue in Noblesville around 1 p.m. when an unknown male approached the rear of the home and asked for the teen's father. The boy said his father was not at home, at which time the male suspect forced his way into the home and demanded money and valuables.

The teenager complied, but was struck in the head, tied up and left in a closet. The boy's parents returned home a little more than an hour later to find the home in disarray, located their son in the closet and called 911.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans. Police say he stands about 6'1" tall, weighing 175 pounds with brown hair and a beard.

The teenager was transported to Community North Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.

Anyone in the area who may have seen a man matching the suspect's description is asked to please contact the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office at 317-773-1282.
