Two people are under arrest and Columbus police are looking for a third after a victim was dragged inside a home, beaten and robbed last night.

Lt. Matt Harris with the Columbus police said that the incident was not a random attack but the exact circumstances are not yet clear.

Police were searching for the suspects after the attack when they found a vehicle associated with the robbery on Marr Road at about 10 p.m. last night. As police tried to pull over the vehicle, a suspect jumped from a rear door and ran away. Police dogs were called in from the city police and Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department to search for the suspect, but he got away.
