Goshen, Ind. Police are investigating after an armed robbery at a Goshen sporting goods store.

It happened around 8:15 p.m. Saturday night at the MC Sporting Goods store on Elkhart Road in the Market Centre Shopping Center.

Police say three black male suspects, wearing masks, entered the store and ordered everyone to the ground.

The suspects reportedly bound eleven people, including two store patrons, with cable ties while they robbed MC Sports.

The suspects reportedly left in a Dodge Neon before the officers arrived at the store.

Police say they believe the vehicle the suspects used to leave the scene of the armed robbery was found at the Maple Place Court apartment complex.

Residents of the Maple Place Court apartments were kept out of their apartments, about a mile and a half from MC Sporting Goods, for several hours as a police investigation went on there.

"I actually parked beside the sheriff and I asked him if we could go through and he said no it would take about an hour or two, so that's when we just left and we came back at 11:30 p.m. and nothing," said Alejandra Torres. "And we're still waiting and they haven't told us anything about what's happening."

Police told authorities at the apartment complex that the car was likely ditched there.

"I have not had any confirmation that any of my residents were involved," said Devonae Hunt, Property Manager Maple Court Place. "I don't have any residents of mine that drive that particular vehicle that they found... We do have our vehicles registered with each resident."

MC Sporting Goods was open at the time of the robbery. No one was hurt.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Goshen Police Department at police@goshencity.com or (574) 533-8661. Anonymous tips can also be given to Crime Stoppers at (800) 342-STOP.
