A 31-year-old Overland Park man was the victim of a strong-arm robbery Tuesday night in the 1000 block of North Third Street.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl, about 10:30, the man went to a hotel room with a woman who was an acquaintance. He stepped outside of the room and said he saw a dark 1980s-model TransAm car pull up and a large white male get out of the car. Hadl said the suspect forced the victim back into the hotel room and proceeded to steal various items from him, including the cell phone. No weapons were involved in the incident.
Hadl said the suspect then left with the woman who was with the victim. Police are still searching for both.
