Muggers Attack Star Political Columnist Matt Tully On The Circle
Perhaps indicative of the troubling crime problem in Indianapolis, Star political reporter Matt Tully tells WIBC-FM he was attacked by two potential muggers last night while he was covering election results from yesterday's mid-term elections. Tully says two men approached him from behind as he passed the Monument Circle near the Hilton when one of the men struck him over the head. A quick-thinking Tully ran into the street yelling and two Hilton employees came to his assistance. The muggers did not succeed in taking Tully's wallet or other personal possessions. Tully says IMPD quickly responded to the attack but were unsuccessful in nabbing his assailants.
