Lawrence police are searching for two male suspects in an armed robbery early Thursday morning in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street.

According to Lawrence police Sgt. Susan Hadl, three women, ages 19, 20 and 20, were in their third-floor apartment about 12:30 Thursday morning when they heard a knock on their door.

Hadl said two black men entered the apartment, one with a gun. One man made the women go into one room, while the other searched through the apartment. After less than five minutes, the men left with at least a television and a cell phone. It is unknown if they stole anything else.

Hadl said the men were college-aged and of average stature. One man was wearing a red hoodie, and the other was wearing a gray hoodie and a red ballcap.

No one was injured in the incident.

If anyone has information regarding this crime, call Crime Stoppers at 843-TIPS.

Read the Topeka paper, it has the complete article.

Get with it LJWorld, start printing the news and stop editing the articles!

Also, if all the other newspapers in the state of Kansas can print the names of those arrested you can too! If not you will not make it and will follow suit with the Denver Rocky Mountin News!

Skinny, what the heck? The two newspaper articles are virtually the same. I didn't feel any more informed with the CJ article vs the LJW one. Thankfully, the young ladies are unscathed, physically at least. Ticks me off they have to include this as part of their college experience.

Giving a complete description makes a big difference when looking for suspects!

I enjoy that the CJ article said there was a "rap at the door"...so many inappropriate, politically incorrect comments to say on that one!

I fail to see what part of the "complete description" we don't have.

CJ:

The robbers were described as two black males of average build, one wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and the other wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and red ball cap. The man with the gray sweatshirt was reported to be armed with a handgun.

LJ:

Hadl said two black men entered the apartment, one with a gun. Hadl said the men were college-aged and of average stature. One man was wearing a red hoodie, and the other was wearing a gray hoodie and a red ballcap.

And, we have the earliest of information up at 1 a.m., with an update with the complete description at 6:06 a.m. The Capital-Journal had nothing on the story until 6:16 a.m.

If you like cjonline better then read it instead. Regardless either start your own paper or shut the hell up.

Lots of armed robberies in Lawrence these past few days. Where is Spider Man when you need him? Oh that's right! He's fighting crime in Johnson County!

must be worried about their unemployment ending. I kid, of course these guys have not done an honest days worth of work otherwise they would not be robbing. They did not force open the door? If I were a girl and saw a few thugs wearing hoodies outside my door the last thing I would do is open that door. Must ban hoodies as they cause more problem than drinking 4loco

Some POCs have gotten tired of waiting for Uncle Barry to give them everything they want.

Did they open the door to the men or did the men barge in?

Thank you. I think that's an important part of the story and was surprised that wasn't clarified.

Toga! Toga! OMG, too funny! (a little bit louder, now!)

Well, how do we know that these "victims" are being truthful?

Flap Doodle 4 years, 3 months ago

Oh look, "blame the victim" is already here.

TheOriginalCA 4 years, 3 months ago

Just saying, you have to look at these things objectively from all angles. I know people who have used the "Two black males......." story before only to find out that the crime was staged.

Yesterdays on-line LJW had an article about Doug Compton's delinquent tax problems in Topeka. Nothing in today's print, and it doesn't come up on a search. Anyone know why?

Hi foodboy, The article you're looking for is yesterday's Town Talk: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2010/dec...

To find Town Talk on the site, go to the "News" drop down menu and select "Town Talk."

how utterly self-rightous of you Smitty....

Yeah, it's freakin hard walking around with a body bag on. For real though, it needs to happen.

rockchalker52 4 years, 3 months ago

"...are going to walk out of a house in a body bag." Is that anything like the sack race we had at my family reunion? Only you can't see where you're going?

MichaelClayton, so this board/bored is so bad, and yet ... Michaelclayton/anonymous user posts on here diminishing the average IQ of all ljworld posters.
