Indy man arrested in robbery case

An Indianapolis man was arrested Wednesday after police said he and another man robbed a Greenwood restaurant at gunpoint two weeks ago.

Brandon Neal, 28, was arrested on a charge of robbery.

Just before 11 p.m. March 6, two men came into Waffle House, located at 1069 E. Main Street, just off Emerson Avenue, stole cash and ran, according a Greenwood Police Department report.

Witnesses identified the two men as Neal and Levi Walker, 20, of Whiteland, a Greenwood Police Department report said.

Walker entered the store first, looked around briefly and then exited. Both men returned, approached the cash register and said they wanted money. The suspect identified as Neal pointed a handgun at the cashier, who opened the register, the report said.

Walker took about $250 in cash from the register and both men left in a vehicle, the report said.

Walker was killed about an hour later when he tried to rob an Indianapolis gas station. He was killed by a store clerk, police said. Police said they don’t believe Neal was involved in that robbery, the report said.

Neal, 3236 S. Temple Ave., was arrested and taken to Johnson County jail. He was held on $16,000 bond.
