Indianapolis police say home invaders made victim help them carry his flat-screen TV

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis police say three armed men who broke into a man's apartment not only stole his flat-screen television, they forced him to help them move it down a flight of stairs. A police report said 30-year-old Jason Geminden and his girlfriend were asleep when three masked men armed with handguns woke them about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday. The pair were forced to stay on the bed while the men ransacked the apartment, taking jewelry, electronics and car keys.

At one point one of the men ordered Geminden to get up and help carry his 32-inch TV downstairs. One of the suspects then told the pair they were so helpful they wouldn't be tied up.

Police believe the men entered the apartment through a patio door.
