Two arrested in reported robbery attempt

February 15, 2011


Lawrence police detectives have arrested two Wichita men who are suspects in a December robbery of three Kansas University students at a Louisiana Street apartment.

According to jail records, the two suspects, 21-year-old Jerome DeShaun Tucker and 20-year-old D’andre Will Williams, were arrested on warrants in Wichita and taken to the Douglas County Jail Friday evening.

Douglas County prosecutors charged the defendants each with three counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated burglary in the Dec. 2 incident in the 1100 block of Louisiana Street.

At the time, police said three women were in their third-floor apartment about 12:30 a.m. when they heard a knock at the door and two men entered the apartment. One had a gun, and the suspects made the women go into one room while another suspect searched the apartment.

Prosecutors allege the suspects took a laptop computer from the apartment. A judge set each defendant’s bond at $50,000.

Wichita thugs this time, tomorrow Topeka thugs, next day KC thugs. We should build a wall to keep them out.

Then the hippies couldn't get out. That's a problem.

More importantly, why did these guys come up here? There is a local connection. $50,000 bond is low for aggravated burglary and robbery.
