Lawrence police Wednesday were investigating the report of an attempted robbery at an apartment in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said officers were called just before 1 a.m. when the victim said a man entered his apartment while he was asleep and attacked him.
The victim alleged the suspect struck him and demanded cash while threatening him with a firearm. The man told officers the suspect fled the apartment when he realized the victim did not have any cash, McKinley said. Officers were continuing to investigate the incident.
