Lawrence police looking for suspect accused of injuring KU student

July 28, 2011


Lawrence police are searching for a suspect accused of injuring a Kansas University student late Wednesday outside his west Lawrence apartment.

Kim Murphree, a police spokeswoman, said the 22-year-old male student was treated and released at Lawrence Memorial Hospital for a head injury. The student alleged an unknown man seemed to be waiting for him as he returned home around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday to his apartment at The Grove, 4301 W. 24th Place.

Police were called at 11:30 p.m. upon report of a fight, Murphree said, and witnesses said they saw two men fighting in an entryway while one was using a bat. The suspect was last seen running southeast from the apartment building.

Murphree said police were looking for a black male who was dressed in all black and wearing a bandana or mask across his face. Nothing was taken from the victim, she said.

I'm not sure I get your drift here. Yes audibleangel's post was OT, but it was fairly correct about 6grand posts. As I'm looking at it now you've got 5384. Yeah a big round-UP. But I don't see where days/year and GEDs, and top 50 posters and Einsteins or math problems come into it.

Allow me to help -

Py has been a member since 2004 or roughly 7 years. 365 days in a year would mean roughly 2555 days available to post. 5400 total posts/2555 days available for posting = just a little more than 2 posts per day. Not exactly burning up the internet at that rate.

People change their clothes. And lots of people wear black. And crooks often try to conceal their faces.

Basically the description is that he's a black guy. Probably he removed the bandana shortly after he left the scene. Wearing it around in public might make him conspicuous.

Anyway wasn't the Kwik Shop guy wearing a tee shirt or something on his face?
