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.

The man had a handgun and demanded that the victim give him his wallet, according to Lawrence Police Sgt. Matt Sarna.

The suspect in the case was described as about six feet tall, and was wearing a dark coat and a dark stocking cap.

After the victim gave up his wallet, the suspect got back into the car and left the area, Sarna said.

No injuries were reported, and anyone with information in the case is asked to call the Lawrence Police Department at 832-7650 or Douglas County Crime Stoppers at 843-TIPS.

You're asking for trouble walking around east Lawrence after dark.

Property taxes should be increased east of Mass to pay for signs warning of the dangers.

I listen to my police scanner for up-to-the minute news. But then again, I am a total geek.

The city could upgrade all city street lighting but refuses to do so. Instead hundreds of thousand of dollars will be spent on a lighted pathway through south park. Waste bigtime.

The city manager explained at a public meeting that the city pays $4.00 a month for electricity for a street light. 60 new lights throughout the area of 12th street including alley lighting would cost $240 a year. The city just gave away $63,000 to PlastiCon, is spending over $29,000 for GPS and each day finds more and more money but none for proper street lilghting. In fact, Kasold has so many lights on it, that the residents in that area wouldn't mind if a few were removed.

Could someone , somehow put GPS systems on the heads of the city commission so we can track their thinking?

Can't help but notice the seemingly intentional exclusion of the suspects race. It seems like a fairly important detail when looking for someone who is clearly dangerous. I don't care if he's black, white, pink, purple, or polka-dotted, he's dangerous. Give us the full description no matter how "PC" it is. Otherwise your only doing half your job.

Can anyone from the LJW inform us why you refuse to report the news ? Why does the Capital Journal consistently have the complete story as released by law enforcement. WTF

The Topeka Capital had this story up on their web page all morning (5 hours ago) with a full description of the suspect.

It's no wonder the LJWorld is going under!
