A 21-year-old female Kansas University student reported to Lawrence police early Friday that someone had snatched her purse in a robbery in the 1500 block of Kentucky Street.
The woman was not injured but said she was approached from behind by two people who knocked her to the ground at 2:30 a.m. Friday, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman. She then went to a friend’s house and called police.
About $70 in property was stolen, including the light green cloth purse and car keys, according to the police report. No weapons were displayed. The victim told police one of the suspects was wearing baggy jeans, but she did not provide any further description, Sarna said.
