Amber Beraun, a resident of southeast Indianapolis, experienced a terrifying encounter on May 8 when she was confronted by an armed robber outside her home, Your Content has learned.

Identified as Damien Boyce, the suspect brandished a gun and demanded entry into Beraun’s house.

However, instead of complying, Beraun handed over the cash she had in her car, which amounted to approximately $100.

In an unexpected turn of events, Boyce insisted that Beraun befriend him on Facebook while still holding her at gunpoint.

He pointed out his own profile to her, seemingly intent on establishing a connection.

In a bid to de-escalate the situation and ensure her safety, Beraun reluctantly added Boyce as a friend on the social media platform.

Surprisingly, Boyce left the scene soon after being added on Facebook.

Nevertheless, Boyce continued to communicate with Beraun through Facebook messages.

In one of his messages, he assured her that he would repay the money, acknowledging the unusual circumstances under which they had met.

He went on to state, “It’s a f***** up way to meet someone, but d*** you were too pretty to rob.”

Beraun responded sympathetically, expressing her belief in his intentions and understanding that times had been tough for him.

Despite the initial fright, Beraun found herself subjected to ongoing messages from Boyce on social media.

At one point, he even invited her to “come chill.” The unsettling incident left Beraun shaken and robbed her of her sense of security within her own home.

She expressed concerns about the presence of potential criminals in her neighborhood, causing her to be on edge and apprehensive about nighttime noises.

Indianapolis Metropolitan police revealed that Boyce had been previously arrested in connection with a separate robbery on June 12.

During that incident, he allegedly shot two individuals and struck another with a brick following an argument.

Boyce subsequently barricaded himself inside a building but eventually surrendered to the authorities when a SWAT team arrived.

He now faces multiple charges, including burglary, unlawful possession of a weapon, criminal recklessness, and battery.

Boyce was also charged specifically for the gunpoint robbery of Beraun, and he is currently held on a bond of $7,500 DailyMail.
