A Kansas City, Mo., man pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting aggravated robbery for his part in a Sept. 11 crime spree in Lawrence.

Michael Dolman, 20, pleaded guilty earlier this week for his participation in the crimes, which began when two men tried to take a wallet from a man near 10th and Connecticut and ended with the robbery of Kwik Shop, 1714 W. 23rd.

Dolman will be sentenced Nov. 21.

Thomas Frederick Washington Jr., 20, also of Kansas City, Mo., will be sentenced Nov. 20. Washington pleaded guilty earlier this month to attempted aggravated robbery and aggravated robbery.

Two juveniles were also arrested in connection with the robberies. Tarron Michael Burris, 17, is charged with aggravated robbery. He will have a hearing Jan. 31. An aggravated robbery charge against Donald Lee McIntosh Jr., 17, was dropped.

The four suspects were arrested by police about 10 minutes after the Kwik Shop was robbed. Police say Burris, Washington and Dolman demanded money from store employees and fled with an undisclosed amount.
