A 20-year-old Lawrence man reported to police Tuesday night that he was the victim of an armed robbery in the 300 block of West 12th Street, Lawrence police said.
The victim told police he was walking in the area when a man who appeared to be about 20 years old got out of a dark-colored passenger car about 11:15 p.m. Tuesday.
