Traffic Ambush and Robbery

I just heard a story of a young man that was driving home late in Hendricks County. When he came around a turn there was a man in the road and he almost hit him. When he looked in the rear view mirror he saw the man fall to the ground so he turned around to help him.

When he stopped and got out of his car he was jumped by three other men that robbed him and beat him up enough to put him in the hospital.

Supposedly this is happening quite a bit lately with people robbing for whatever they can unload and sell quick for the money.

Can anyone else confirm this?
