Crime: Perkins Restaurant robbed A man who acted like he had a gun took money early Sunday from a Lawrence restaurant cashier. Shortly before 5:30 a.m. a man entered Perkins Restaurant, 1711 W. 23rd St., and asked the cashier for change, Lawrence Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. The suspect demanded money from the 18-year-old man working as a cashier when the cash register drawer opened, Pattrick said. The suspect put his hand inside his shirt and acted like he had a gun, the cashier told police. After taking an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect left the restaurant. Police do not know whether he left the area in a vehicle or on foot. The suspect was described as a black man in his mid-20s, 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. ________________________________________ Forum: Kansas Board of Education to take public comments Folks planning to give the Kansas State Board of Education an earful this summer need to mark their calendars.
