Police searching for suspect in KU robbery

Police were searching for the suspect Sunday afternoon in an armed robbery that took place on the KU campus in a parking lot near McCollum Hall. Enlarge video

Kansas University Public Safety officers are looking for two or three suspects after an armed robbery Sunday afternoon in a parking lot near McCollum Hall.

KU spokeswoman Jill Jess said in a statement that a male student reported a suspect approached him and demanded money. A gun was involved, Jess said. The suspect took cash from the victim, but no injuries were reported.

The suspect left in an older-model brownish-maroon sedan, which was possibly a 1980s model Chevrolet. One or two other people were in the car, Jess said.

KU has made counselors available to assist the victim.

Anyone with information in the case can call the public safety office at 785-864-5900 or KU Crime Stoppers, which handles anonymous reports, at 785-864-8888.

In the statement, KU public safety officials urged students to report any suspicious activity to police, and they also said students should take precautions, like walking in groups when possible.

The Lawrence Journal World doesn't print suspect information, that includes suspect descriptions too.

Why would anyone rob a broke-arsed college student?They'd probably get more if they robbed a panhandler.

With all this racism talk, everyone is overlooking the fact that LJW is printing Sexist articles. Come on, Really. Do you think Daylight likes being called a Broad?

It's more fun to play MadLibs with the suspect discriptions:

a ___ suspect, _ years of age, feet tall with _ hair and ___ eyes fled the scene.

I'm with Multi on this one....

To say 'misery loves company' probably doesn't quite cover it -- but add to that 10 million cop shows on TV telling us how to do it isn't exactly 'must see' TV on a nightly basis.

Anger and frustration may be expressed in a plethora of ways...but violence has become the norm in our confused, gun-toting culture. For those of you who think it won't at some point take over Lawrence and all its 'innocence' -- think again.

Not only do we not know what race but we don't know what sex, or even what species. Nothing but "suspect accompanied by peoples." Political correct lazy non-offensive journalistic g0bbly g00k run amok (Watch your mouth! The words "g--k" are not allowed here) making this story completely useless.

I've got 10:1 odds I am called a sexist, racist, homo-sapien-phobic hate filled right winger for making that observation. I might even have the post removed for not "watching my mouth." Want a little hint kiddies? Nobody cares what the posters on here think, least of all the morally superior anonymous few who quickly call anonymous others names.

what this , ku going to provide counselers, how is that counselors is the new game. what ku needs to provide is:

a Gate to the dorms. A checkpoint and not counselor but an armed policeman. turn secuirity over to Lew Perkins, he'll fix it.

My first post wasn't sarcasm and it wasn't racist, it was the simple truth, I stand by it.

You need a lesson on what racism is, then you wouldn't throw the word around like a 10-year-old.

Sarcasm is a form of irony that is bitter or cutting, being intended to taunt its target. Don't think this applies to arumerzwartehoop

"so is there a discription of the suspects??"

2 or 3 suspects in maybe a eighties chevrolet of uncertain color.

That should be enough for 200 additional posts......

Fox had an article about the 'familycides'. How this didn't even happen with the Great Depression. But a great deal of crime did.

Maybe we can blame the change on TV and movies? I vote Power Rangers. Is everyone either so.."ungodly" or so "entitled" that they will not endure suffering alone, they must inflict punish another along with themselves if they are to suffer?

Oxidized maroon?

I hope someone is examining the idea that a pattern is emerging. Stranger on stranger crimes are on the increase in Lawrence. Muggings, assaults and rapes by strangers walking down the street... this doesn't even happen in NYC any longer, so why is it happening HERE?

Well maybe a description of the suspect would help?!?!? And since when does brown and maroon look similar?
