Police seeking suspects after Friday night robbery

September 19, 2009


Police were searching Saturday morning for suspects in connection with a strongarm robbery that occurred late Friday.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Michael MacLaren, a 19-year-old Springfield, Mo., man was walking down an alley in the 1000 block of Ohio at about 11:30 p.m. when he was approached by three or four male subjects who demanded money.

The men stole cash from the victim and fled in an unknown direction. The victim was unsure of the mens' race or appearance.

The victim, a KU student, was not injured in the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stoppers hot line at 843-TIPS.

The thugs are learning that it's easy to rob the oft-on foot KU students. It's easy; go to the student ghetto, hang around, and wait for the one guy walking alone. The students living there need to travel with friends.

Also, don't walk down the goddamn alleys. I understand that there are a lot of alley accesses that lead to housing, but just stick to the main roads until your block comes up.

All the crack smoking baby momma's moved here from the cities to get on the dole in liberal Lawrence. All the builders over built apartments in Lawrence. There's five apartments for every single college student now. Their still building more apartments. So all the riff-raff from the city moved to Lawrence, with their heard of kids. All the inter city thugs come over on the weekend to chip'em and dip'em. Lol.

So, they rob a few pilgrim college students on the way back to the city.

Crack is high here in Lawrence. You can buy 3 times the amount and quality in the city. Big rocks that's higher quality will get you laid in a hurry in Lawrence. Lol. You can take your pick, bad, bad, Santa!

What is happening to Lawrence? It used to be safe. I think we need more cops on the streets Friday and Saturday night.

1 guy walking down a dark ally at 11:30 at night. Not very smart. To bad it is that way but in today's world of lazy punk ass druggies, walking down an ally at night is not very smart.

And what is SOP? Standard operating procedure?

I am sure "SOP" was a type error. He just "mist" the B and hit P by mist-stake. :)

it must have been those black guys with the zebra coat....we never did catch them, huh?

Either that 50 year or he is really dislexic (sp??) and meant POS (which would make sence).

Everyone should own a gun because of guys like these, it's the only way it will stop.

"Everyone should own a gun because of guys like these, it's the only way it will stop."

But if everyone owns a gun, what real difference will it make? In this instance, it would be one gun against four guns, and then we'd have five people in an alley shooting bullets in every odd direction, which I'm sure wouldn't hit any innocent bystanders...

Let me get this straight Lawrenceguy40, you are blaming Obama? Did you know that you can use your brain for thinking? Maybe you should do that before using your fingers for typing!

somebodynew 8 years, 8 months ago

georgia- you obviously haven't followed lawrenceguy40 enough. Don't you know EVERYTHING is Obama's fault and everybody but him is stupid.

How can you not tell someone's race if they're standing right in front of you? I don't care how dark it is.

"lawrenceguy40 (Anonymous) says…

Why does this surprise anyone? Barry O told the people that he would provide for them by taxing the rich and giving to the poor. Now he can't deliver, some think they have a right to help themselves.

It's a direct consequence of your liberal votes….."

By your "logic", lawrenceguy40, every crime committed during George W's 8 years were a direct consequence of your conservative vote. Thanks a lot for getting us into this mess in the first place.

"Keep "f**king that chicken." Good one Boosh. At least somebody here keeps up with current events! : )

Lawrenceguy 40,

You should really keep to your self. Your idiocy is staggering.

What about the transients? Are they contributing to the problems?

Today was a first for my 12 yr old. He actually witnessed the gutter punks/transients taking food out of the trash bin in front of Tellers and eating it.

In the 13 years I've lived in and around lawrence, I've not noticed things getting so out of control. Was going to move back, but I'm going to watch and see how it plays out.

parrothead8 8 years, 8 months ago

The "liberal chorus"? I've never heard a liberal blame a president for robberies happening on a local level. It was your "logic", lawrenceguy40, that made that connection.

Robberies happen because people need/want stuff they don't have. More people in this country need/want stuff they don't have right now because the economy sucks. The economy sucks because of a myriad of reasons, most of which can't be blamed directly on George W. Bush OR Barack Obama, but many of which happened under GWB's watch.

You're like the baseball announcer who says, "This guy is batting .372 against lefthanders when he's got a 2-1 count during day games following night games in months with fewer than six letters." None of the connections really connect.

Don't forget that the thugs have access to the news too, once they find out that robbing students down in the Mass/Student Ghetto area works without much trouble, the word will spread and it will happen all the time. Easy pickins is sadly what we have become.
