- A 22-year-old Kansas University student reported to police that three men tried to take his wallet about 9:20 p.m. Thursday as he walked in the 2300 block of Orchard Lane. Affalter described the incident: The student said he was walking home from KU when a "sporty" green or black car with its lights off approached him. The driver demanded the student's wallet. When the student refused, the driver and his two passengers got out of the car. The driver hit the student in the ribs with an iron object. The student, who said he holds a black belt in karate, kicked the driver in the face and the men fled without the student's wallet. The student described the driver as a black man in his 20s, 6-foot-2, weighing 170 pounds. He also had a goatee. The passengers both were described as black men in their 20s, 5-foot-9, weighing 150 pounds. All three were wearing dark T-shirts and trousers.
