Muncie Man Fights Off Bandits in Parking Lot

A Muncie man told police he fought off an attack by knife-wielding bandits late Sunday in an eastside parking lot. Officers were called to the scene of the would-be robbery — in the parking lot of the Marsh store at 1800 S. Burlington Drive — shortly before 11 p.m. The victim, Kyle Armstrong, said he was going to work when two men jumped him.
