Frantic 911 Call: Man Shoots At Robber Following Heist

FISHERS, Ind. -- Police on Tuesday released a tape of a frantic 911 call after a restaurant was robbed early Monday morning, after which an employee shot at the robber.

Just after 5 a.m. Monday, Norman Jaffe reported to work at the Sunrise Café in the 9700 block of East 116th Street. Just as Jaffe stepped toward the front door, he was accosted, 6News' Jennifer Carmack reported.

"He had a black face mask on, black bag. He ran out behind here, hit me in the head," Jaffe told a 911 dispatcher.

Fishers police Sgt. Gerry Hepp said the robber demanded money from the employee and forced him into the business. Once he got the money, the robber ran out of the back of the restaurant toward a housing division. That's when Jaffe pulled a handgun and fired 10 rounds, Hepp said.

"I asked him to stop. He pulled his weapon, raised it right to my face. He was 20 yards away and I lit him up," Jaffe told the dispatcher.

No shots struck the robber, according to police. The robber is described as black, wearing black clothing, a black ski mask and black gloves. He is about 6 feet tall and weighs 190 pounds.

"It seems the circumstances, he was in fear for his life. It was justified in this case," Hepp said.

Later Monday, a Papa John's on 96th Street was also held up at gunpoint at about 10 p.m. Investigators said the same person might be involved in both robberies.

"We're not going to rule that out. Two robberies in the same day is certainly unusual in Fishers," Hepp said.

Mark Quigley, who lives near both restaurants, said crime is filtering into even the nicest of communities.

"I don't think a lot of people realize what goes on in other parts of the city. Desperation is what drives a lot of the people who commit these acts," Quigley said.

Police said they believe there are witnesses to the second robbery. Officials asked anyone with information on either case to call Fishers police at 317-773-1282.
